  2. Welcome back Rick, another one returns to the fold
  3. Yesterday
  4. Hi there. It's been a while. I've not long put a deposit (yes, money) on a MK1 Cavalier 4 door, so I will inevitably be on the look out for parts come the end of the month when it arrives. I just thought to post to see if my old account was still active too—it appears to be so.
  5. Got one here somewhere, nice bit of kit tbh
  6. Aluminium pre filter available not cheap but looks like it will come apart for cleaning. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293646765927

  9. in that case it sounds like a flywheel issue. maybee someone had it skimmed flat by mistake rather than leaving the recess which it should have which would certainly explain the very large gap. someone should be able to confirm this with a picture .
  10. Ok thanks. Im fully aware that there will a small gap between the 2 parts but this gap is around 9mm which is far to much, the parts that came off were a bit of a mess but look like they were new, and have not done much work, since they were fitted after a conversation with the owner over the weekend it turns out that the reason the car was parked up years ago we because his farther fitted a clutch to it and could never get it to operate correctly so you just put it in a corner of the barn, so im guesseing there was an issue then to!

  14. Hi Dan, I see you are redoing the floor soundproofing, I forgot to take pics of where the factory fitted stuff went, so wacked it on everywhere:
  15. The engine was a chance from a SRI astra that MANTAMAN had previously but it had damage and along with some electrical gremlins. The car was dismantled and scrapped, but not before I'd traded another engine for this one. They're good engines from what i've read, and can make easily 300bhp or so with little more than management, a decent intercooler (the stock one is pathetically small and plastic!) and a drainpipe exhaust. I do recall seeing a Manta with the same engine and was making 278bhp at the wheels though an 1800 gearbox. I picked the RX8 gearbox for 2 reasons - one , they're cheap (£200 for a good one) , 6 speed so better ratios and they're not much longer than the stock manta box. It wouldn't take much to design a custom mount and with some careful cutting of the tunnel to move the gear shifter hole back by 100mm or so to fit and still retain the centre trim. Plus there is kits to adapt them to Vauxhall engines and other brands. Given RX8's are going pop cause the Renisis rotary has a tendency to self destruct and the RX8 comes in a portly 1450kg? or so kerbweight, then it's a good choice for a good RWD box being plentiful, can take a good amount of power and cheap. As for the interior.. Honestly I've never seen another car with it, and to put it bluntly, I'd rather take it all out and replace with a nice black one, I'll be sure to make sure it came out intact as it's hard to find parts. Though I'd only want the front half as the car's going to have a full weld in cage.

  20. Interesting engine choice, and gearbox, where did they come from? Nice manta! Green interior. Would look ok in a early green manta with hard to get green tinted glass? Maybe! Is the dash green also? Hope you enjoy your project
  21. Went for a short run after idle for 10 mins just to check it wasn't gushing out and no leaks seems ok but early days will update in near future.
  22. Think that’s rather L2 jetronic variant. think this is the one you want as fitted to 323 etc, can see oem part number clearly. However , the bmw number can be found https://ecu.eu/bmw/air-flow-meter/bmw-13621284407-bosch-0280202031-129549.html
  23. Great pic, sold me on the idea now seeing how bright it is . No way MOT man can moan about that!
