Manta B GT/J 1.8s 1982 Service after storage


Recommended Posts


Sorry if this has come up before, and it might sound daft, our manta is kept garaged over winter and is back in service this summer after being SORN for 2 years, I carried out a full service after it was rebuilt and put on the road 4 1/2 years ago, however it has only done approximately 1800 miles in that time to date. Would it be appropriate necessary to change oil filters plugs dizzy and rotor? The car is started roughly every 3 to 6 months and up to normal operating temperature during storage. Oil used is Mobil 1.

Secondly I am having some difficulty in sourcing the appropriate service items that are either genuine or OE, any thoughts or advice where they could be obtained from would be much appreciated.

Thirdly is it worth replacing the coil on these???




Your advise and comments will be much appreciated.
