Lotus Elan

Dual-circuit brake master cylinder

PostPost by: bigvalvehead » Sun Jan 10, 2010 9:00 pm

Hi Guys
Not wanting the weight of the original 26R dual circuit pedal box for my 26R I have had a pattern made of a doubled up Ford 100E pedal bracket as used on the Lotus Seven and Lotus Formula cars.

This makes an extremely light and very strong pedal arrangement which can be built up for the Elan in LHD or RHD form and can also be used for the Seven as originally intended.

I can supply this bracket unmachined for 95 GBP and you can make pedals to suit. It has the std spacing for Girling type cylinders.

That looks like a nice job & could provide an answer for a number of People.
However not many can do much with an non-machined Casting, not having those sort of facilities handy to them.
Maybe I'm out of touch with prices but 95 GBP sounds like quite a lot for a Casting
Maybe a machined part complete with the Pedal Pivot Bar would make the offer more attractive?

Cheers
John

Bighead, I'd be very interested in a complete setup. Any chance of that? Cheers. Mike
