In very good condition, and very original. Looks like a full tool kit plus the carpets in both front and rear compartments.

The dashboard is the only thing that lets it down.

Very late car too.

It should fetch a top price.

It's worth 36,5 because it has a glove box door, very rare!

I was just wasting time and thought I'd see what Europas were going for at Hemmings. This one caught my eye. It's very nice. It's so original that it has the original radiator and fan! It doesn't have the crossover tubes. They say the dash is perfect, but it's really not. It is quite good for a car as old as it is. From the looks of it, it doesn't have a muffler. At least not one I can see. The best part is he only wants $36,500! Firm! I hope he gets it! https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/lotus/europa/1922755.html


There are other Europas listed, both S2s and TCs here: https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/?q=lotus+europa

Apparently dental style forceps and another Europa owner were all that was needed.

Visited Dr Dean today and had a successful extraction.  Uniform upward pressure did the job with minimal damage to the shoulder on the reservoir.

Onto the rebuild.......

The plastic speedo gear holder/bushing is easily removed.  Jack up the rear of the car so the oil stays in, properly support the vehicle, unscrew the speedo-cable, remove the side retaining bolt (10 mm head) and pull it out.

It's not the cable that is leaking.

You need to replace the o-ring (31) and seal (33):

Thanks for the reply!  Do you know if those can be replaced without removing the rear cover of the transaxle?

  I tried looking through the rebuild guide for the transaxle and didn't see anything specific to replacing those with the transaxle assembled.

Hi Everyone,

New Owner of a 1972 Twin Cam here.  Having fun with the car,  but dealing with a gear oil leak problem I'm hoping you can help with.   

There is gear oil slowly dripping out of where the speedo cable enters the transaxle, at the green seal in the attached picture.    Have any on you run into this problem before?   I tried looking for new speedo cables online and it looks like they are available,  though I didn't see the seal included with the cable.   Also,  is there somewhere that details the cable replacement procedure?   Any info would be a huge help!
