Lotus 907 prototype update
This morning I popped over to John Toovey’s with my friends who owns the 907 prototype engine, we are very close now to an engine ready to run. The rocker covers and carburators need to be finished, otherwise its just the odd nut and bolt now.
The engine is spotless and details like machined alloy core plug and stainless catheads make for a neat looking finish. Its going to be almost a shame to put it into a car.
Note a new dip stick has been fitted, so the owner doesn’t have to climb into the engine bay to check the oil level like the original setup. The sump is original, all be it out back up and re-assembled as it was cut up to make it fit a Toyota some time in the 1980’s.
Crankcase oil pressure / breather assembly, again unique to the engine, this will be utilised correctly and not just blanked off to make things simple.
The unique oil pump and dizzy drive assemble, has all bene lovingly restored and looks the part.
