  1. Thanks. Will be interesting to see what happens.
  2. Anyone know anything about this ad or the dealer? He has no Ebay history. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1919-Lotus-Other/333018508206?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

  5. Saw this on Ebay this morning http://www.ebay.com/itm/301688517962?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Bought a rear end from them a couple of months ago and would consider them a good source.
  6. Thanks for the input. I'm told that Spax has cleaned up their act of late and has improved quality. May be sorry but I got a deal on an open box, unused set so I figured I'd give them a try. Had Bilsteins on my Caterham and loved them. What are the specs of your springs? Free length and PSI. What is the primary use of your Seven?
  7. Anyone out there with a Series 2 Seven with a Cortina axle? If so, what rear coilovers are installed. The Spax units designated for Series 2 & 3 (Spax G776) are too long by at least 2 inches. Thanks for any help. Don
  8. Selling two air cleaners that I purchased for my Seven but would not clear my clam shells. Waited too long to return. They are either K&N or Redline. No lettering on the units. Fit 40/45 DCOE. Virtually brand new. The measure 7"x4.5"x3.25" high. Permanent filter is cleaned periodically. $80 for the pair Call Don 865-414-6990
  9. I have a Detroit Locker differential for sale. Fits Cortina Mk 1 & 2, Escort Mk 1 & 2, and Anglia 105E. 22 spline English axle. Replaced it on my Seven in favor of a LSD for a more docile street experience. Great track/autocross rear but a little jerky for everyday street use. Asking $150.00
  10. Actually, the differential unit that I am replacing is a Detroit Locker. There are no spacers. I assume that spacers will be needed if there is side to side movement greater than spec.
  11. Thanks everyone for the input. I also felt that it would be doable until I found that no shop in my area would touch it. I'm thinking now that its a matter of unfamiliarity. I actually spoke to a shop manager at a local Ford dealer that had never heard of a Cortina. Think I'll just go at it.
  12. Thanks for the input. I consider myself a pretty competent mechanic but, although I have a factory manual, I figured it might be best to let someone specifically experienced so as to have someone else to blame if something goes wrong. As I'm sure you're aware, extracting the rear is something you'd rather not do twice. Cheers Don
