Lotus Elan

Differential 3.9 ratio NEW PRICE

PostPost by: englishmaninwales » Mon Apr 24, 2017 5:25 am

As title, recently removed from my S3 and in full working order. No unusual noise, clonks, whine or oil leak from nose seal. Unknown mileage, but covered 8k trouble free miles in my ownership over last 3 years.
Removed in March only to replace with a 3.7 for more relaxed cruise rpm.
Please note this is for the diff only and does not include the carrier. I can supply a choice of two diff flanges.
£250 ono. WILL ACCEPT £150 - see below.
I am located in North Wales and price does not include carriage, purchaser will need to arrange a courier. I can help with delivery for Manchester or West Midlands.

I sold a completely rebuilt one (new bearings/seal/crush washer/re-shim and complete re-set) recently for £280 so IMHO it's too much.

I would say that the fact it's been proven to be good definitely helps the sale compared to a lot offered for sale.

All the best with the sale.

There is one on ebay that keeps croping up with price of £99.99. Never sells.
I tried to sell mine years ago but no joy. My Escort / cortina guys tell me theyre worthless, cant give them away.how true that is,up to you. I have a 3.89 and 3.7, and i still have them. Got fed up trying to sell.
