Manta 400 Works Axle Pic Wanted....


Recommended Posts

Cheers Curt.... though doesn't show exactly what i'm after sir....

I am after a pic the 2 wire ropes that were on some / all the works cars to stop the axle dropping too much allowing the springs to fall out......

The springs in them pics seem to be alot longer than my tarmac ones, a hell of alot longer.... mine are 180/220 progressive springs and are about 9" long which leave the ride height perfect.... read somewhere before that works cars had 2 wire ropes attached which mean't the axle didn't drop as much so kept the springs in place... not sure if shorter shocks would be the perfect answer either technically speaking.

If I remember correctly these pics are of a ex works car that was used out in Africa ( hence the longer spring!) and it was only half built.

I have seen the axle ties what your after but that was many moons ago.............not much use to you tho :(

Cheers Curt, maybe someone else may have a pic or 2.....
