  1. It did actually sell the day after I spoke with the owner. He got £18k for it, obviously in Ireland as cars in general are much more expensive and this is amplified with classics. He still has the original steering wheel, as I used to drive it with a protector when I took it on maintenance runs and it's basically brand new condition. The wheels have gone, although I fitted some different refurbished Ronals when I had it as the originals had gone porous. I also think provenance and paperwork has gone now as he asked me to confirm the mileage. I ahem.. "sold" it (to KGF) with every tax disk, MOT and service history—yes, the little footwell book thing—and even the original window sticker and bill of sale that showed £5000 + a trade in for a 78 Cavalier for it brand new, delivered on the 1st August 1984. A shame to "retro mod" an original. I dressed the engine bay with Clive Armstrong's custom chrome/stainless stuff, an Opel GT rocker cover and silicone hoses, etc, but still kept the original parts. Getting my pants pulled down.. er, I mean selling this car was the BIGGEST MISTAKE I ever made, and I've been married twice!

  2. Hi Wayne, you can find them on several German webshops. An example: https://www.o-t-r.de/shop/ascona-manta-a/kupplungssatz-16-19/ So if the gearbox and clutch is out, think it is the moment to fit a new oilseal on that side of your engine. It's only removing the flywheel...

  5. Hi This how that pipe looks inside of my engine head. Seems like it had better times . Looks like someone has ripped it apart. I think this head has been already messed out by someone in the past. Look at the pictures including the camshaft bolts Found this small wire-spring lying around between the rockers, Does anyone know where it could came from? Thanks guys
