  1. Yesterday
  2. Herman, have you ever heard of molasses? Try you tube. It takes about 2 to three weeks, less destructive than sandblasting. What are your thoughts to protect it afterwards? Ceramic coating? I like the three week waiting time, as it relaxes the time, allows me to put my feet up! Relax and wait, and not listening to a noisy grinder with wire wheel. All i needs is a truck of molasses, and a large manta size swimming pool!
  3. The 9:31 stamped on the crown wheel is the ratio - 31 divided by 9 = 3.44. 3.44 : 1 may not be the right ratio for the 1.9 auto if you want to keep it original (think it is probably 3.67 : 1 on your car).
  4. I honestly couldn't tell you mate sorry, I'm not familiar with ratios etc..
  5. Hello from a fellow Irish (Manta) owner. Welcome to the forum! Nice Cavalier...not many of those left in Ireland (though I do know of another in the same colour - a relation of mine has it squirrelled away in his garage) You're right that this place is a mine of information and helpful posters - long may in continue that way!
  6. Would these suit the rear axle of a 1978 1.9 automatic? I dont know if I actually need them or not at present...
  7. Hi Jess I have dug the Irmscher wheel out and found some packing for it, I just require some more filling to pack the box out. I am glad I read your reply as I have to the end of the month to sort out the complete packing. I have just taken some recent photos to show it is in the same condition as the other pictures and when they upload to my OneDrive I will post them on for your perusal. Regards
  8. Hi everybody, did anyone used rustconverter on an exhaust pipe? The one bolted on the exhaust manifold so it gets hot. Grts, Herman
  9. In this instance, the seller (Kieran Ribbon) is a well know name for restoring Manta's over the years. I'm sure there are various others on here who can second that. He is/was an OMOC member, but seems to post on Facebook more these days.
  10. Jeees, just would like someone to know him as sick of the fake advertising
