  1. Herman, if you can get me the dimensions of the piston you require I’ll see what might be available over here. Most of the 2.4 engine guys over here use Chevrolet 305ci Hypereutectic pistons in their builds, they do need some modifications but nothing overly drastic.
  2. Herman, first off Mery Christmas to you and yours. On the pistons for the 400, if you can get me the specs and dimensions for the pistons I'll check to see it there is anyhing comparable available this side of the Atlantic. One of our local Opel guru's (John Warga) is a CNC machine wizzard and has modified pistons to work in his 2.4 CIH build, I’ll talk to John and see if he has any ideas. I’ll send you some pictures of John’s work via e-mail. Chris
  3. Keep at it Mke, we need more Opels on the road in Canada. Hopefully my B will make it's return to the asphalt in 2021.
  4. Update, my Bro supplied this Google Earth view of where the car is located. The blue dot marks the spot. Loddington Road, Tilton-on-the-Hill. .
  5. I received an e-mail from my brother earlier today with these pictures of a Manta Hatch he spotted while out on his Sunday morning cycle ride. The car is located in Tilton on the Hill in Leicestershire. If anyone is interested I'll see if he can give me more details on the location. Chris
  6. These little gizmos are a must in a CIH engine Opel GT. In the GT the engine is tilted around 5 degrees towards the passenger side (LHD) and then tilted downwards towards the rear of the car, resulting in potential oil starvation to the cam and lifters.
  7. Shug, I think the answer to this is a simple no they should not. This is a blatant display of age discrimination and the person who wrote this and company they represent should hang their heads in shame and review their privacy policies before posting such information in the future.
  8. I'm Going for yellow on mine as I will be using the yellow and gray door flashes and Im going to carry the yellow throughout the car as the accent colour. My rocker cover is of the Opel GT variety so we will be machining back the fins and Opel logo to bare alloy after powder coating, going to have the DCOE inlets powder coated yellow at the same time. I did red powder coating on my Morris 1000 rocker cover and a matte silver on the LCB exhaust manifold which all looks rather nice nice with the Old English white coach work.
  9. Congratulations, I'm sure this will be another Abbot masterpiece. Looking forward to following the progress on this one.
  10. Danny, I agree with you on this, I just don't get the thinking of some people. A friend recently passed along this photo of three Opel GT's rotting away in Northern Ontario.
  11. Pud the wood, I'm racking my brain on your identity. John Wooding by any chance? I was in sales but spent a good deal of time with the guys in the workshop. I'm still in touch with Kim and his wife Sandra and visited with them the last time I was home in October of 2018. I'm also still in touch with Alan Sharp and also visited with him during my 2018 trip. I'll send you Kim's contact info in a private mail. Here's an oldie for you......
