  4. long-standing club member here although i have been pretty much absent for the last few years - two of them overseas ... sadly parting with my dream manta after owning since 2007 ... while i was in canada the manta was parked up and needed a lot of work on my return - i had this done and the 6 months of driving following the last MOT in February began well but i was beset by problems over the summer ... most of which are documented on here ! fingers crossed i have enjoyed a period of stability with the car the last month so i am pretty sure that i have ironed out the major issues - all structural bodywork was done to a very high standard for the last test as my aim at that point was never to part with her ! i have put as much detail on the auction page as possible but stuff always slips through the net so please ask http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221148430506 i mulled this sale over long and hard but she has to go ... anyone who knows me and the reasons why i was overseas will understand i need a reliable ride for myself and my daughter who now lives with me and i finally have funds coming through to secure that email any questions ! i like ebay but not for cars ... would prefer a happy ending on this - sooner rather than later thanks all

    Gte Distributor !

    hi sourced a second hand unit from young ian courtney turbo on the wirral ... picked it up a couple of days ago and it was fitted today ... so far so good but the proving ground will be the journey to work in the ayem as i have been plagued by phantom cut-outs for the last three weeks ... it has seriously messed with my life ! in terms of yours rob i think if this one doesnt work i might hang up my manta hat ... thats how bad its been recently so if you two want to do a deal thats fine ... thanks for the offer anyway
  7. needed ... its on the shopping list ... manchester / north west ASAP thanks
  8. beautiful gleaming stealth black re-cored radiator being fitted as we speak ! havent been able to get ahold of the viscous fan in time to replace today so will have to see how she behaves

    Viscous Fan Needed

    hoping somehow i can lay my hands on one and get fitted during working day tomorrow ... rutts has one we are trying to line up ... blitz as you are north of the border i think time will go against us
  11. cars that overheat are the bane of my life ... and they all seem to wind up that way eventually ... just been paid for the first time in 3 years believe it or not and on my to-do list next week is to re-join as a member ... until then can anyone confirm if the viscous fan is orderable from a motor factor ?
  12. H

    Viscous Fan Needed

    Viscous Fan Needed

    no takers for the viscous fan ... north west based ?
  14. getting my spare radiator re-cored hopefully next week ... because i finally got paid !!! underlying heating issue has proven to be the viscous fan not driving the fan if anyone has one ... parts ad posted ... didnt get around to trying the egg trick yet ... the k-seal is holding the rad but when it gets sufficiently hot it blows though at the fracture and i lose my water complement
  15. My underlying heating issues are down to a demic viscous fan ... 2.0 gte exclusive coupe manual ... NW or Manchester based ... can pick up ASAP thanks
  16. could that trump k-seal ? or will i wind up with egg on my face ... hang on how did he manage to crack just the white ??? or are you just yolking ...
  17. Hi all ive had an underlying heating issue for a while which meant i popped the tremostat ages ago and ive been adding water as and when as ive not been in a position to deal with it due to lack of funds ... anyway the situation has gone critical this week and the rad has sprung a big leak at a front fin and the top seam ... k-seal helped for about 50 miles but i lost all water today ... anything i can do to patch it up on the fly pending some time and money ( next couple of weeks ) hitting my account ? is there any kind of tape or similar i can use to stem the leaks ? thanks ...
  18. the k-seal was good for two trips to work and back and i lost all my water when i got home tonight ... so i am still in need of a working rad
  19. okay this one is shot full of holes even more than the one in situ ... not to mention testing a years-old rad in the bath tub wasnt the best idea ive ever had ... so my need is still great ... although i have unearthed a bottle of k-seal which i might try ... although both times i tried radseal in the past i swore id never bother again as they seemed to hamper rather than help
  20. hi thanks ... i have actually found one in my black market manta parts storage cupboard that i didnt know i had ... it looks to be in as bad a state as the one thats on ... just filling it with water in my bathtub now to see if theres an obvious leak ... will get back to you ... thanks man ...
  21. hi all ... as if things couldnt get worse im at the point where im losing so much water i need to fill up before every journey to and from work ... ive got a bad leak at the front which ive tried to patch but i definitely need a new radiator ... manchester ideally or north west is possible ... manual exclusive coupe ... would be looking to pick up this week thank you all
  22. hi i dont think there are actually ... it has recently been resurrected following my return from a couple of years abroad ... i spent a lot getting her back on the road and she seems to always need something at the moment ... pm for some photos of the legendary STEALTH MANTA !
