  1. biffy1984 do you have a photograph of the two axles side by side? Wondering if the manta a mountings correspond to the manta b axle...plus as a bonus the a has a stronger steel torque tube...
  2. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Opel-Manta-A-New-Old-Stock-Genuine-Opel-GM/254409496589?hash=item3b3bfcd80d:g:liIAAOSwYv9dvsGV

  5. I stick to Bosch.....although mine is an uprated version ....plus use a larger Jag XJ6 fuel filter which is a straight swop for Manta one, just need a larger jubillee clip to attach to bracket.. ps The standard pump is good for about 200bhp.. (50hp per injector).
  6. Assume its for a 9 inch flywheel https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-Carlton-2-2i-Opel-Manta-B-2-0-Clutch-Kit/193383910278?hash=item2d06944b86:g:sEcAAOSwCg9ebonuV
  7. If you can't find a Manta one...pretty sure these were fitted to other cars with Bosch injection....such as 4.2 Xj6? for example https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Jaguar-Daimler-XJ-XJ6-S2-S3-Fuel-Injection-Cold-Start-Injector-Valve-EAC1383/192137461547?hash=item2cbc48ff2b:g:UOEAAOSw2gxY0wpk

  9. Nice....and yes I would swop the engine....may be a 3.2 V6 and widen the steel wheels, keep the hubcaps...plus buy myself a flat cap, thick rim glasses and brown leather gloves ....oh plus a brown tartan blanket covering back seat...then go looking for some street action....(no offence to anyone who dresses like this or owns a tartan blanket!)
  10. Question, was the four slot centre section (headlamp to headlamp )panel ever available as a separate part...I know they were available for Mk1 Cavaliers but have never seen one for a later Manta....This would be an ideal panel to be re manufactured.....

  13. Nice car, this is the first time I have seen it....a lot of work ahead......as its already been modified I would rebuild the front chassis rails in steel box sections, you'll need a jig to locate existing datum points, but would be cheaper than fitting nos chassis rails, .......unless you have a pair in the attic.... see my Viva below.....similar suspension to Manta, also removed inner wings.... ps thats an interesting Turbo set up, like to see more pics....also like the rusty holed rocker cover!!!
  14. Hi Chris, looking good..... has anyone fitted the Omega Elite 3.2 engine to a A or B Manta? I like the twin inlet symmetrical look of this engine.....
