Contact R & S Motorsports in New Jersey. Many Lotus dealers send their units (transmissions and motors) to him for rebuilding. 201-750-0700. He is a Lotus factory trained tech. Also listed on Lotus's website as a dealer repair station (the only one that does repairs but NO sales).

You might also contact Tim Engel in Minnesota. He's rebuilt many for owners like yourself and knows the Citroen box as well as anyone.

Are you going to have them upgrade the clip that fails?

Citroen SM World is another data point for you. I'm sure you're already aware that a full rebuild averages around 25 hrs and none of the parts are cheap but are at least available... :eek:

One word of advice from someone that learned the hard way: It's a great idea to solicit recommendations for work on these cars, but make sure you qualify how old is the recommendation.

Anyone that works on Esprits is likely to be a small shop, and therefore, is likely to lose the good people over time. I got burned on this just a few months ago when I went off of old recommendations that no longer applied to the mechanic's shop.

R & S Motorsports is a "one man show". It's all Ralph and only Ralph. Any work done there is only done by the "master".

Mr. Teitelbaum speaks the Gospel. Ralph is Lotus through and through, we are lucky to have him in the NYC area!
