Not defending the guy, but surely his comments on ignoring emails refer to questions/demands for a buy it now price, not general queries.

He's not yet replied to me on my questions regarding the whereabouts of the V5, when the cambelt was last changed, how or where I could view the car, why it started 4 years ago but not running now, what cat D work was carried out etc.... :?

The usual un-edited auto-completed specs page.
ABS & it has 123bhp so it must be an NA...but it has a boost gauge :poke:

It's more expensive as it is highly sought after. There was only one Lotus Alan !! that left the Hethel production line :twisted:

PS not sure about all those oil leaks under the oil cooler in Alan !!

Don't worry about oil on the ground ... click "See other items" and there's 15 other cars parked in exactly the same place. That garage must be Dr Who's TARDIS ... :lol:

Link to droplinks on SJ website:-
www.sjsportscars.co.uk/index.php?mod=10

I bought mine on impulse also (without the excuse of alcohol), good choice on the colour :D


Hope you don't mind me posting on the 'wrong' thread - but at least it continues the 'ebay' post.

Car is now back from local garage. Sorted all the bits and pieces to get it though an MOT (drop links etc) and tidy a few things up (electrics / seals etc). Thanks for guiding me to SJ for parts.

I do however have a problem they couldn't fix. It's missing at 4,000 revs+ - not always but enough. Like a fuel starvation as revs build. I've had a scan through the history on here and the suggestion seems to be ECU related to cutting fuel? The exhaust has been changed and garage suggested the ECU 'may' have been mapped? (although it's only going to 0.6ish bar)

Feels like I'm at the final hurdle and when not cutting out, J-BRA goes lovely! Can you recommend a local (Barry South Wales) specialist who can help?

Thanks in advance

Thanks Peter - read a couple of old posts that suggest it's too much power trying cutting the engine management (seems to be when hot).

Keen to get it hooked up to a diagnostics if anyone knows anyone local

Thanks

This Elan is definitely worth looking at for anyone in the market.
I purchased a stripped down full engine from the man selling it a few months ago, along with being a very nice bloke, now retired, he was a mechanical engineer and the RAC's chief scrutineer you could tell from the way he had taken the engine apart and labelled it that he new what he was doing.
The Elan was in his garage when I visited as he was refurbing the brakes and suspension and it looked very clean and well looked after.
He has a genuine reason for sale and it is a 74k example which is at the moment sitting at a very low £2.2k although admittedly the auction has a fair way to go.

I'm going to post this in a separate thread so it gets noticed. I head up Club Lotus Sussex and it is one of our members car who has recently died. It is a totally honest car and very invest-able
