Lotus Elan

Plus 2 parts

PostPost by: clivetonge » Tue Nov 28, 2017 11:33 am

Firstly I'm embarrassed that I've lurked for so long, but what a fantastic resource this is for Elan owners!

Been getting to grips with a Plus 2 and have removed parts which may be of use to someone here so before they're weighed in, is anyone interested in:

Full set wishbones, serviceable with good bushes (bar one). Passed MOT but with surface corrosion. One upper front has slight damage from (I'm guessing) the pin being cut when the chassis was changed (!)

Pedal box (no pedals)

Servo for rebuild - worked but with just enough softness in the pedal to annoy......

All free to good home! I'm in Warwickshire (Leamington/Kenilworth)

Cheers

Clive

Do you know if the brake pedal box is the wider early type or the later narrower type. My early car was missing it’s pedal box and I’ve had to fit a later type on an adaptor plate, but would like to go to original if one is available.

Nice to see someone put something into the elan community and not trying to make profit out of it. Well done.
Cheers Andy.

I ran my S3 on an absolute shoestring for years so I know what it can be like. Very lucky to be able to afford the hobby now.

The pedal box is from a 72 S130/5

Wishbones & servo been claimed!

Thanks, that’s the later type pedal box then, not the one I’m after.

Cheers
