  1. Bought new koni all round on my ascona a. German ebay cheapest and very quick postage. This was before brexit. Saying that just got a parcel no problem from Germany took a week but no issues.
  2. Don't think anyone will find an ex works manta 400 for anywhere near that price. A genuine road 400 is knocking on 80k for a mint one.
  3. Good off set for the a series is what was fitted on the sport versions. 13x7 et20 ats classics. a 15x7 et 20 will fit nicely with 205 50 15 tyres. I have 8x13 ats classics et00 they will stick out on standard arches with 205 60 13 tyres. If you download the tyre and wheel conversion app you can play with off sets.
  4. 15x7 et 25 fit great with 205 50 15 tyres no modification needed. Run them no problem. The hatch is now running 15x8 et30 205 50 15 no touching with a 40mm drop.
  5. Yes mine are legal. As one is a 1974 other is a 1985 . Much better at illuminating the road ahead. But as I said going back to standard filament bulbs for rear .
  6. Not in a classic car it's not a fail . Not in a classic car it's not a fail . 22 March 2021, we’re changing these rules so that not all motorcycles and vehicles will fail the MOT test if their halogen headlamp units have been converted to be used with HID or LED bulbs. Class 1 and 2 motorcycles Class 1 and 2 motorcycles must not be failed for the defect ‘Light source and lamp not compatible’. Headlamps must comply with all other requirements of the test and headlamp aim. The motorcycle inspection manual will be updated shortly, and the ability to select the defect within the MOT testing service will be removed. Class 3,4,5 and 7 vehicles For class 3,4,5 and 7 vehicles, the defect ‘Light source and lamp not compatible’ only applies to vehicles first used on or after 1 April 1986. Should a vehicle be presented for an MOT test with conversions before 1 April 1986 they must not be failed with immediate effect. Vehicles presented with converted halogen headlamp units first used on or after 1 April 1986 will continue to be failed. Headlamps must comply with all other requirements of the test and headlamp aim. The cars and passenger vehicles inspection manual will be updated shortly.
  7. Only things to change are dash obviously. Swop over the clutch cable outer holder. Throttle outer cable holder. Swop over top steering column bracket markings/dimples are in bulk head where to drill for peddle box to bolt up. Steering column lower hole is there just needs hole saw.
  8. Easy to convert to RHD couple of hours work most of the markings are in the front panel. then find a RHD dash.
  9. Different pcd on crank. Larger in size also
  10. For not much more you could buy a TTV billet flywheel. Bedford cf 2.0 cih flywheel is the one required 6 bolt cover same as 400. Will look what flywheels I have sold last monza one for £50 to big cliff.
  11. As snowy says carlton ones are best. Both fit no problem. Check for the early ones not mk3 carlton.
  12. Got a 1.6 crank here been balanced up for high rpm. No bearing shells.
  13. Lambchop77 can give you a bit of information on this. Think he has done it in his 2.3 cih🤔
  14. Polo fits with work involved. B fits depends which servo for which master. Delco or ATS
