Adding VVC to an EU3 K Series Engine Wiring Loom
By Andrew Revill. With thanks to Alan Archer.
This is the assembly guide from around 2001 and covers a lot of K-series cars.
This is the assembly guide from 2014 and covers Sigma engined cars.
Since 2010 the Seven has been fitted with a BMW differential containing a Titan limited slip unit either as standard or as an option. In service reliability since that date has been of considerable concern to owners.

Standard Wet Sump:5 litres
Standard Wet Sump with Oil / Air separator:7.5 litres
Dry Sump (tank in Bellhousing) :4.5 litres
One of the important items that should be checked when trying to optimise the handling characteristics of your Seven are the corner weights in order to ensure that each tyre is carrying its proper share of the overall weight of the car.
This guide is based on myTechTalk thread "Duratec R400: removing/repairing/replacing wet sump" (April 2016).
A master switch kit has been produced by Caterham Cars to enable the fitment of an Autolec battery master switch, primarily for competition purposes, but also for security. This contains the following components:

Close the TBs completely and then adjust the balance mechanism so that both start to open at *exactly* the same time. open the throttle fully to make sure that all 4 plates are at the same angle when fully open to confirm they are in balance, it's often easier to see discrepancies when the throttle is fully open.
Note: I've based this guide on an article I wrote for Low Flying (August 2004). It applies to cars with cable-operated clutches, and specifically K-series from around 1997 on.
Heres how to fit a 3rd high level brake light to your Caterham. With thanks to Oli Wright for the instructions and pictures.
