Hi,

 

After crossing continents, I'm still working - slowly - on a 1/12 scale Lotus 72D; a heavily modified Tamiya kit.  Can someone help me solve this (to me) mystery?

I collect as many photos as I can find on the web.  I've circled an 'adjuster' but have no idea what purpose it serves.  Perhaps something on/around the oil cooler could be adjusted?

I'd appreciate any help.

 

Thank you,

 

Mark

 

Notice, too, the mechanic smoking!  John Player Specials??  Something you surely wouldn't see in and around the pits today  :smoking:

If memory serves, this was part of safety cutoff system that neutralized the electrical. It was attached to a pull ring near the roll over bar.
