  1. For anyone else, the 2.4 cover will also fit, wish I had bought a few new ones, when available.....
  2. Good to hear from you Roy...I like the look of the earlier Bs
  3. Found, this, says you use a manual omega box? https://forum.wscc.co.uk/forum/topic/35487-xe-with-manta-gearbox/page/2/
  4. Gone to a good home, colour right for your car?
  5. Just as a guidance/idea. If you can find a suitable bellhousing, you could make up a plate as per photo...I used this method to fit a Monza 265 box to my Chevy V8 engine...... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Lotus-Elan-2-Cortina-Capri-Getrag-gearbox-5-speed-conversion-adaptor-plate/254701959593?hash=item3b4d6b79a9:g:cvoAAOSwSv1fKWnY

  8. Don't recall seeing this part in Mantas https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Kadett-C-GTE-Resistor-Pack-Nos-Manta-A-B-1-9e-2-0e/293766869343?hash=item4465deb15f:g:hswAAOSwpdxfeaYz
  9. Heard she took it to Steve Thompsons for the full 2.4 engine conversion, bigger brakes and LSD....😊 Although not a Manta, I did once see a 80 year plus old lady on TV who still drove her original AC cobra weekends....she bought it because she liked the sound of the v8 exhaust..... Also helped another 80 year old plus gent park his LHD W reg Porsche Turbo in a space....he was struggling badly...he told me he had bought it in Germany, but got someone to collect it for him.....case of, its not your age, its the car you drive... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5og40PaU_FM
  10. These normally do not rust badly as water collects at the lower part of the swan neck, so you might find 2nd hand ones cut off a better shell?
  11. I have a brand new Frontera engine stored in my house, but not on display!😃 ps good luck with your search!
  12. Progress being made, the reason I mentioned your head gasket, is some replacement ones don't have all the smaller round holes as your one has for block to head transfer. A tip or pre engine start (sans spark plugs) up is to fill you oil pump with vaseline before fitting the pump cover as will aid the oil being pulled into the pump....
