Hi There,
I've recently joined the ranks of Elan owners having bought a S3 DHC project. I've been messing around with classic cars for quite a while but this is my first Lotus.
My plan is to build a fairy standard Elan but with a Sprint spec tall block engine.
Thanks for a really helpful forum.

Won’t it damage the fuel system?
