  1. The thing is you can see where the previous owner repaired the outer skin but did not really do a very good job. I can only go by what the garage said and showed me and the rest of the chassis legs were solid.. The jacking points had been done properly which was a huge relief.
  2. I must apologise here if I upset anyone but that car has lost a lot of what makes it appeal by those modifications. It is horses for courses and everyone has a right to visualise and realise a project to ones own specification. However, there is something in the simplicity of the A series in standard form that melts you every time.
  3. WOW - have you seen the price this is going for.. Is this now the Manta finally fetching Escort Mk2 prices (the escort being inferior in every way of course) I feel a bit happier selling mine now......
  4. As you know there are issues with my manta for the MOT - just a few bits that unfortunately I cannot do .. here are some pictures of the work. Each chassis rail has rotted on the outside - the garage checked the inner part and it is ok. It had been repaired by the previous owner but he was worse than welding than me, and I cannot weld !!

Clear editor Drag files here to attach, or choose files... Max total size 20MB Insert other media Uploaded Images IMG_0067.JPG 72.65 kB GOSH - I messed that up.. Basically two small sections of the chassis rail - inner skin is fine , the garage said its just a small section of outer on both sides. The read subframe mounts to chassis needs to be re-welded as shown in pictures and also the handbrake cable needs changing on one side as it is frayed. The battery was not secure because i had the battery clamp in the boot as I removed it to charge it, The window wiper front passenger side rubber is torn but that a repiar I will do before sale. That's all that was wrong with the car to his knowledge and he would have passed the MOT today if those were corrected. personally i am out though, its an A series Manta or another Corvair for me now. I don;t have the time right now or the inclination to find a welder and find a couple of chassis legs. What you see in the pictures is what needs doing. Tomorrow when the car returns i will take many pictures as I have put a lot of time and effort and money into this. Private plate - D25 (december 25th ) JPW will come with the car - valued at over a thousand pounds on its own. Paul
  5. ALL sorted - just got a 752 for 24
  6. I got a lovely 751 - the tape belt broke and then the unit itself went.. all in a week :-( Looking for a 751 for parts only.
  7. Hi Chris, I have managed to source all the parts now thanks to guys on this forum. There is something I have found out and that is the spec is the other way round regarding the 751 and 752. The 751 is actually the higher spec unit. I would have thought the 752 was the better one being higher in numbers etc..
  8. Hi All, just to let you know that I am all sorted for all the parts I needed now thanks to you guys on this forum. To Danny, Mr Carlos and EldoradoCoupe - A huge thank you. To anyone else not a member browsing this - JOIN THE CLUB ! Worth the fee many times over just for the help and parts and hospitality. Paul
  9. Hi , I am all sorted now thanks to another member. Thank you
  10. Hi all - are the cassette holders in the center console hard to find?? mine didnt have one. Not seen any come up on the bay so just asking around. Still need a gear gaitor too... The black cage for the radio and so on...
  11. Hi , I did a search on here and unfortunately it seems to be an obsolete part now. Its basically a thin gasket that goes between the fuel injector retainer and the head. I only need one of them as there was a vacuum leak there and a bad one too !! Maybe the small rubber seals as well , two of them if anyone has spares.. Thank You
  12. I know , I know !! A long shot indeed but does anyone have the Philips 752 for sale?? Even a broken one will do as I have been known to deal with electronics. A quick aside here, is there any other period radio for the 2.0 Gte Exclusive from 1987??
  13. Mine snapped right by the entrance to the bulkhead. I am hoping there arent; too many choices or differences in clutch cable. Gearbox is standard 5 Speed , Engine is 2.0 1988. If you have one please let me know and also whether Paypal is good .
