Welcome to the Garage Sale! 

After being in the Lotus parts business for 45+ years, you accumulate a lot of "stuff."  Bit by bit I'm going through this "stuff" and it will be posted on this page.  Items will be added whenever I get a chance, so check back often.  In many cases there's only one of an item, so contact me right away if you're interested.  And I'll try to be prompt about updating the page when an item has been sold. 

In many cases we are open to offers to parts listed on this Garage Sale page. Phone or write if you're interested in a part.

MISCELLANEOUS PARTS

Motorcycle ColorTune

ColorTune is a test spark plug with a high-temperature glass window in the center which actually allows you to look into the engine as it is running and analyze the combustion flame for color and other appearances. Since different air/fuel mixtures burn with different colors you can quickly tell if your engine in running rich (yellow flame) or lean (white flame). A correct 14.7:1 air to fuel ratio burns with a blue flame.

ColorTune installs temporarily in place of one regular spark plug. Start the engine and observe the color, then adjust the carburetor mixture until a blue flame is seen. Repeat this procedure to synchronize multiple carburetor installations. ColorTune takes the guesswork out of carburetor tuning.

ColorTune can be used on any two or four-stroke, carbureted or fuel injected, gasoline or propane engine.

ColorTune # 4171 - Regular Price $79.00
This Colortune has 12mm threads for use on motorcycles with 12mm spark plug threads.
