    • Hello LDC, I hope that you are all well, and stay well. I am after some ideas/advice.... I have a Lucas 43D distributor with Lumenition optical inners on the Esprit S1 907 engine.  Oil escapes from the distributor shaft and onto the engine. I dont recall ever seeing a seal in the shaft, so assume that a decent seal was made previously by the distributor clamp. I purchased a distributor shaft oil seal from SJSportsCars but have since been informed that these seals will only fit with an original Lotus spec distributor. I also purchased a new robust distributor clamp. Any ideas of whether I can get this "original" spec seal to fit, or any seal, or is there is a tried and tested way to prevent oil leakage? I look forward to hearing from someone.

    • I see they have now extended the early bird offer until the end of April.... https://www.silverstoneclassic.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIh73qxLi66AIVg7HtCh3D0QsfEAAYASAAEgISPfD_BwE
    • & i know we'll meet again some sunny day 👍
    • We have had to cancel Angelsey, the accommodation got cancelled and Jules is on the "at risk" list so she's in for 12 weeks now.   MSV have closed their circuits and I guess others might follow soon. LOT refunded entry fee very quickly, top class. We'll meet again, don't know where don't know when. (One for the oldies) Kim
