  1. Not going to make this one, car's running ok but it's too cold and wet out there for me...
  2. I will try and get there then, seems to be running ok now but I've said that before
  3. Right, I'll try this again.....
  4. That's brilliant, been having trouble with one of the self adjusters recently, bet it's the same thing
  5. Spoke to soon, probably won't make it now
  6. Are you guys having a meet this month? Thought I might drop by now I seem to have a fully functioning manta again......
  7. Did I hear my name being mentioned?????? IIRC the old Manta Magic article was a bit of a bodge and relocated the wiper spindle hole to the centre of the scuttle panel, it's much easier just to use the existing hole. I've since done a better version, sure I wrote a rough guide to doing it somewhere relatively recently, I shall be back.................
  8. Red FTW Some impressive work going on, just one thing...... Looks like you know what you're doing but are those seat bars up to the job just being welded at the ends like that? normally they have spreader/reinforcing plates where they attach to the body.
  9. remove the front subframe (with wheels attached), fit engine/box etc to that. lift the front end of the car up, roll subframe/engine etc in place, drop back over it - job done
  10. ^^^^^Exactly For that kind of money I'd want something road legal. Also be curious what it would take to get it back on the road now with the sva/biva regs, guessing more than an afternoons work
  11. Sure you're reading the right number mate? It's stamped on the flange the bell housing bolts to Should start with 20XE........
  12. Are you using a relay to power the fan? A lot of these thermo switches can't handle the current a fan pulls so need to be in a relay circuit.
  13. this place has a few weber bits...... http://www.dellorto.com http://www.dellorto.com/merchandise/products_details.asp?PartNo=72302&CategoryID=3&PartsectionID=57
  14. Sounds like you might have found the problem. I used an M14x1.5 nut and spent an age going through the sensor catalogue at the local parts shop trying to find one with the right temp range and m14 thread (think it's for a rover??)
  15. I've got a similar setup and use a 100/95 degree switch (fairly sure it's an intermotor too), needle hardly gets above the middle before the fan cuts in which seems a bit early for that temp range so I'm assuming my gauge or gauge sender isn't reading right. Just a thought - where's the sender located in the pipe? Needs to be underneath so it's always in the water flow. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v326/mantachris/16v%20project/fanswitch7a.jpg
  16. ET -7 are proper man fitment wheels but I'd be suprised if they would go on a manta without some arch mods. The bit I'd be more worried about is where it says 'These wheels have been slightly modified to fit a 100mm stud pattern'
  17. I think it might be Nothing new to report, just a photo in last months retrocars mag....
