  2. Work well mate, I prefer Dellorto over Webber's too.p, however not as many people carry the jets etc for tuning, but better carb for progression and road use(drivability ) and IMO they don't go off balance as much. however very tight against the Brake Servo, Master cylinder. You can get away with a short trumpet on Dellorto . Same issue with the XE too, carbs sit about same position as the manifold for the CIH is longer. Other option is relocate the servo & master cylinder forwards to behind the headlight, and use a rod / tube. Very common on MK2 escorts. pic shows the 6 , but the carb sat next to the Servo highlights issue correctly. @ANDY ABBOTT has some pics of his on carbs that might help you too.

  6. No problem at all mate. Used it on all my bills. 8mm micro bore copper pipe. Its nice and soft and easy to manipulate into place/shape. Never had an isdue with contamination. I also used codan R9 injection hose. Well your not far wrong Ian, id have actually made more progress but still in process of moving the business premesis which also involves moving tons upon tons of manta stuff to the new place too, and all the cars 🀣 only this one is left at the old unit now so I'm making as much use of the pit as I can before I'm out of here next week. Its going to be a week or 2 before I've got a ramp in the new manta shed πŸ™‚ the brake flex is a braided one from black diamond

  7. Hi, Many of you will have known my Grandfather, Denis Battrick, very proud owner of his orange Manta SR A Series, HPN 363L. He sadly passed away on Saturday 23rd January and I thought you would like to know, as you've probably chatted to him at various shows over the years....although several years ago now. He made it to 93 years old and still talked about his Manta with passion. Apologies if I've posted this in the wrong part of the forum. Adam.

  8. It is, just stood upright for picture, look at the flange πŸ™‚ Indeed it's the way forward with the CIH engine for sure. Jenvey do those Weber looking Bodies too, so it could look old school, but be very smart setup. πŸ‘

  11. Fit a nice set of throttle bodies running the Omex ECU, nice and easy to fit and you wont spend your time having them tuned as mentioned above for the carbs! Had twin 45's before and was always getting them balanced!

  12. Hi Adam, I did have the pleasure of knowing your grandfather, I joined the Manta club 30 years ago and often chatted to him at Billing each year he attended, He made an appearance on the club video that was made many years ago talking about his A series, It was a stunning car and an absolute credit to him. I am very sorry to hear the news of his passing, My thoughts are with you at this time. R I P, Dennis.

  13. If you want a Weber carb, their is a manifold for the Opel GT CIH ENGINE that uses a single DCOE carb. If it was my money, that is only option I would do, or convert to injection from a GTE ( simplistic conversion).

  15. I had nothing but issues with twin webbers on both of my cars. C24ne and c20xe. Went in for setup numourous times and was just nothing but hastle. Lumpy or fast idel, cutting out at junctions leaking fuel, and killing me in the cab with fumes. Also had issues with them boiling my brake fluid so had a heat shield made, boiled the fuel from the heat of the engine so exhaust was wrapped and I fitted a cold air feed all of which still didn't make it run right. I gave up and fitted throttle bodies. Theres pics of my carbs in the projects section under i240r build. Ps my carbs are for sale 🀣🀣

  22. I did my test and passed in snow, the reverse around a corner was a challenge. I had convinced myself after that I had failed and was pretty mad at the examiner for making me do it in the particular location that had had zero traffic . I obviously passed, and the comments of pdf the examiner was quiet amusing at the end. He could not believe I did not give up or hit the Kerb haha
