Lotus 907 Prototype
Just a quick update on the prototype 907 engine that is being rebuilt for a fellow Viva Gt owner, we are nearly there. He is told “it will be ready for christmas”.
As a reminder for those of you joining the story late, here is the engine in question, as I first saw it in 2013, covered in oil and grease to protect it.
The engine has now had a full oil seal conversion at the rear, to remove the old style rope seal, which was never very successful, and is in the first stages of build up. Its now shines.
Some of the small details make for a more interesting engine to look at:
The bottom end still needs liners fitting, and a nice set of new liners are on the shelf ready:
In a few weeks time we should see the head mated to the bottom end and all the other various bits fitted ready for its debut on the dyno. It should be interesting!
