  1. 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.
  2. Thank you for you welcome messages I am really looking forward to getting involved with the club events and meeting you all. The car should be back with me mid-April; I'll be good to go!
  3. Hi I've had my S1 Esprit since 2013 and love it. This is the first year that I have signed up to a club and I am very much looking forward to getting involved in the driving adventures and other road trips. I am a regular at classic motor racing events and would like to meet up with other enthusiasts to share the experience. My partner is very tolerant but I know she doesn't enjoy the noise... or the cars. I am based in North London and hope to be accepted into the Hertfordshire group. The car is currently in at SJ Sportscars for restoration but will be back with me by April (fingers crossed!) I look forward to meeting up and hearing from you. Regards
