    (Note: Posting for an Esprit owner local to me [M13].) I'm selling the stock engine from my 1988 Esprit.

    Why are the large fuel filler hoses and the fuel filler vent hoses from the neck to the tank double clamped while the crossover hoses are only single clamped? While I'm on the topic, anyone have a source for the molded fuel filler vent hose from the neck to the tank? They are no longer...

    Just received my Boyd tanks for my 93 Lotus Esprit, which look amazing, but I have an issue. I can't install my factory 5 bolt OEM sender with all the bolts lined up or the float jams up against the back of the tank. So my solutions are 1) hollow out the holes in the sender with a drill bit and...

    I've come across a nice Esprit that has been laid up for a while. The price is attractive but several things need attention and cumulatively it is more than I have time for. One solution is to pay someone to do it as the purchase price is attractive. Does anyone know of a good Esprit...

    Former Lotus Owner in Louisiana My name is Mike and I have been a career auto sales industry guy for 35+ years. I was digging around, and found some goodies that came with a 1988 Commemorative Turbo Esprit that I bought about 20 years ago. I towed it out of the original owner's garage because...

    I have an early 93 Esprit with a broken strap and broken collar for the reverse lockout. I have both parts from JAE. I have the shift lever out, but not sure how to get to the strap. There is a spring pin in the middle of the level that appears to hold the internal mechanism in place, but it...
