    I too am intrigued about this as I can sometimes hear my rear pads rattle lightly at low speed.

    I'm totally confused; why are you thinking you're going to need to buy a renault gearbox on its own? If the transmission is such a key part of this plan you're hatching, why cant you just be sure...

    This question can't be answered without more information, like: What engine are you attaching to? Obviously the power you're trying to manage is the biggest consideration.

    In general, these are...

    That looks normal. Gearbox oil has a lot of sulfer in it; its the main thing that gives it the distinct smell. It smells pretty bad, but I find you go nose blind to it after a bit. My wife on the...

    You could use just about anything to cover them. If you have a thin sheet of plastic, you could cut a piece to cover it and RTV it into place. Anything as long as you seal it.

    Patrick, do you...

    I have to wonder how many Lotus owners have actually tried running something less fancy.

    Full disclosure, so do I. I may be an outlier, but in the last 6 years or so I've had to drain and refill my transmission four different times, and didn't want to keep paying for the synthetic stuff....

    Wow this all looks great. Just a note about those roll pins; be sure that the pins are centered in the shaft (i.e. not sticking out too far on either side than the other). When you have the shafts...

    Buy this.

    It's way too cheap not to. I bought one about 7 years ago, and even though this is the only thing I use it for, every time I need it, I'm so glad I have it. I broke a 10mm open ended...

    This is indeed the best comment in this thread because of how painfully accurate it is.

    Speedi Sleeves are just an industry part. I think multiple manufacturers have products like them. SKF has Speedi-Sleeves, Timken has Redi-sleeves, etc. Every now and then we'll use them on gearbox...

    I don't think you should get much pushback. I've actually heard this be done quite a bit in the past. Sometimes an orbital sander is the only answer. Once you get it smooth enough, you can go back...

    Clearly something like this does not exist, as what MrChocky is referring to is something that members of the community would be willing to share.

    Do not take a hammer directly to any of the bearing parts; you definitely want to use a bearing driver like what DMC-81 showed above. Most autoparts places rent them, or you can buy your own. I have...

    Despite the difficulty with so many Hervey products, I have to say, his braided clutch bleeder was/is great. I'd say it was probably the best product I ever got from him. I still have it on my car,...

    25lb increments allows you to be within 12.5lbs/in of any desired spring rate. How much more fidelity do you need? Whether or not you have a passenger is going to affect handling more than this.
