suzi is patiently awaiting next season.
she has donated her alternator to "the lotus", but will only be disabled for a couple of days.
reminds me of a couple of things to modify before next serious use...….
looking forward.

Anytime one can donate things to a Lotus, even on a temporary basis, is one of honour.

attacked my parts rearend…
[Linked Image]
stripped it to a bare tube.

so----examination of the internals...….
the axles have the correct splines, so i'm quite pleased.
the differential carrier is not usable, as the ring gear bolt pattern is different.
the tube is the same, and suzi's chunk will bolt to it.
the brakes are bigger on the 4dr, and i have all the parts...….

nice day today.
drinking beer and tinkering.
looking forward.

i think the tube has seen no rocks before, so i cleaned it up and made it shine.
[Linked Image]
then began the existing rearend removal process.
observation--- much contact happens on suzi's poor pumpkin(i'll post pic later?), so i'll mess-up the new paint when i try to metalglue some wearplate type thing on the bottom to protect that drainplug better.
also want to get a bit longer(1-2" brake hose to replace the 30yr. old one to the axle. been wanting to do that for the front, also.
developing too many alsos.
time to start makin' the punch lists- the seasons move on..

had a bit more time/weather, so i did clear suzi's rearend, and am examining the pieces.....
I have found that the pumpkin it's self is pretty good at dragging over rock, but the drainplug really takes a beating.
[Linked Image]
it used to stick out proud, like this one.
[Linked Image]
i intend to beef that area up a bit.

Can you use a hardened bead, or beveled plate, and fab a mini-slider over this?
