    B4BP Gearbox Wanted

    Thanks All, Gearbox is out just needs new bearings so not too bad. Cost of New Clutch and lightened flywheel mean upgrade will have to wait!

    B4BP Gearbox Wanted

    S1 is in at Gav’s for a Service and gearbox has to come out. looking for a B4BP low ratio box (improvement on standard)
  3. Hi All, Does anyone know if MLOC has a specific Instagram account? There has been a lot of posts following the #Lotus 70 event (currently 1991). #MLOC has 1107 posts but quite a few seem to be cartoon characters. Just seems like a good way to promote Lotus in the Peak. Especially if we link posts to other clubs and lotus based sites. Food for thought?

    Replacing light switch

    Successfully removed the panel (thanks for the seloc link) and removed the switch. Fuse is also out. Just sourcing a new switch.

    Replacing light switch

    It's stuck down and no amount of pressing or adjusting is freeing it.

    Replacing light switch

    Has anyone replaced a dash switch for the lights in an S1? hazards are currently stuck on! great weather and I can't really drive it. Nightmare!
  7. Hi,

    Simon (Foggy) here.

    wondered what time you were arriving at the NelsonCould meet for a pint in the bar if you like. I am meant to be meeting with Simon F but not sure what time he’s getting back From Snetterton.

    My number is 07779 164448

    Great day at Donington

    Great day out! Huge congrats to Craig for the driving and Alans1 for the car prep. it was great to see it all first hand! Some stress and hard work but all worth it! We were watching from Old Hairpin and it was clear to see how hard all the cars were trying down the Craner Curves. Would be good if we could arrange an MLOC contingent to support these races! Anyone else up for it?

    Sport 160 Seats

    Hi All, cheers for the offers of assistance. Phil S1 came to the rescue and we got them out on Sunday. Didnt expect the level of filth that was under them! But tub is at least now clean!

    Sport 160 Seats

    Hi All, as I’m useless with anything mechanical (no really!) I only have basic tools! (Or is that I’m only a basic tool!) Any chance of some assistance with taking mine out? I really want to get them refurbished before Lotus in the Peak (as they are not in great shape and I’m embarrassed by them!) I have tried to undo them but only have a small Allen key and can’t move the bolts. I really don’t want to do any damage! I would take it to Gav’s but without seats I can’t drive it back and want to clean out the interior while they are out. Any help greatfully rewarded (beers/tea/biccies etc). Cheers in advance. Taff.
