  1. I’ve got a good one spare somewhere if we can get it scanned and reproduced….. but I’ll need it back etc etc
  2. This for sale topic may not yet available be for your usergroup

  4. Looking for an early CIH filler cap in as mint condition as possible. I’ve got two already. Ones rusty and dented, and the other has been painted badly and won’t clean. I’m after one thats period correct for late A series or early B, and as clean as possible. Thanks.
  5. Welcome along Bruce! Looking forward to seeing your projects both on here and at future events!
  6. Injector seals would be another at a guess but unsure if you can get them yet, rated to e10.
  7. You never know, they may have signed up to here for advice and gone a little shy. That’s the first thing anyone new to the manta scene would do, head for the owners club!
  8. If I remember correctly the 1.8 box takes about 250bhp before it lets go…… probably why 300 is on tap, wouldn’t want to push it all the time!
  9. Very much this, if it hasn’t already got one. Even the XE is a wheel spinner without the lsd. Best money I spent on mine.
  10. Yes they are adjusted when the engine is warm. That is if you’re engine is running in the first place. But if it’s been rebuilt, the cold set guide is good to start with. The Haynes manual covers it well, I did a set on a 2.2 Carlton a few years ago and it ran smooth. I think every CIH owner has a spare rocker cover cut open somewhere haha
  11. I think we need stoo2000 or whatever his forum name was to have a look into this issue.
  12. And the easiest thing to do is share the link, like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WELLER-MATTIG-RIMS-AN-TYRES-VERY-RARE-/255108802797?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m2548.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  13. I’ve got some original GM ones still on a steering rack if they’re any good to you? Rack needs a rebuild as the gaitors have perished.
  14. Simon Peckham built that, I remember when he brought it to billing a few years ago. Wasn’t lucky enough to get a ride in it but I bet it’s one hell of a car to drive. No point putting the boat anchor back in it, much more modern engine gives way to a much more modern driving experience!
  15. I bet that’s lively! crap advert though
  16. Yes please. Both sides are missing
  17. Looking at my 76 coupe, it had a front end welded on about 10 years ago. No idea why they didn’t save the indicator brackets. Does anyone have a rotten front end they can cut them off for me?
  18. Not done a lot on this recently. Getting my driving license back seemed to slow productivity down. Had an hour on it tonight. Got my powder coated early rocker cover back (had to clean all the bloody sand out of it though!) and got it fitted with new gasket. found a vacuum advance pipe. Fitted that too, and some heater pipes donated by someone doing an engine conversion.
