Hi everyone

Just to let you know that Viv got back to me with a positive response so am arranging with him to send me one. Thanks to all for your responses and offers of help. Much appreciated as always.

Will - got your pics. Agree motor does look very similiar but it does not have the manual adjusting knob protruding from the base which is needed to wind up & down the pods when all else fails. Thanks anyway for the offer.

Finally as to your additional info Jim I too had found references to TVR/Lotus uses for that part number but not the particular ones you indicated . The last one you posted showing a site selling a motor for TR's & Lotus Esperit just proves the point that if you want to pay 3-4 times the price of a small Scim for one of those cars you have to to expect to pay 3-4 times the price for the same parts.

Thanks again for all the help.
