  1. Hi Jason, if you are looking for a four door Ascona B, I might be selling one I purchased last year to ship over to NZ. It's currently sitting in storage down in Eastleigh, near Southampton, and I'm just trying to make a final decision on it.










    Based in NZ, I've only seen it in photos myself, and have had UK mates collect and deliver for me, so will have to check old emails for the mileage - think it was around the 45K mark, from memory. It is an auto, but conversions to manual seem a regular activity for OMOC members and I would do it myself if the car makes it over here.

    Just found the original ebay advert:


    or item number  201321738296  if you can't open the link. Let me know if interested, and that will help me to decide what to do with the car as I've seen some alternatives to ship - a VX220 and an early Opel GT!

    Let me know what you think.



  2. Any push on fuel pipe will have a rubber based inner and will allow fuel smell to get through. If you want to eliminate this you can use a PTFE lined hose like those used in braided brake lines but you would need specific fittings for them and its not cheap.
  3. Momo make a boss to fit that wheel to a Manta.
  4. I have a BGR one on mine as its one of the slimmest ones and really good quality. Still brings the wheel quite close. I would only use a flat wheel with one. Tried a dished wheel and I felt like a NASCAR driver. Far too close. http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/motorsport/steering-wheel-bosses-accessories/brown-geeson-quick-release-steering-wheel-adaptor I have this wheel on now. Not cheap but really nice and retro looking. http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/motorsport/steering-wheels/momo-prototipo-steering-wheel
  5. Ashley make a 4-2-1 manifold for the CIH. UK made so will be for RHD cars http://www.jjcraceandrally.com/race/exhaust-parts/ashley-competition-exhausts-competition-exhaust-manifolds
  6. OMP manufacture a 6 point bolt in cage for a Manta B coupe. Demon Tweeks sell them.
  7. I'm sure I have read that the FWD 2.5 models have a lower intake as this is what gets used when using the 3.0 in fwd cars to give clearance... or just ditch it all and fit 6 ITB's with stand alone management ;oP
  8. Yeah. I figured I would have to have some made up to suit rather than get off the shelf ones.
  9. Have any of you guys used WRC type sill stands in the standard Manta jacking points. Looking to have some made for my Ascona and seems it will work in principle but wanted to know if anyone has experience of it.?
  10. I was going to come along in my Ascona 400 rep. Im not a paid up member of the club, would that exclude me from joining you guys on the club stand.?
  11. Definately need an adaptor plate. Not sure on the jetting. An XR2 is similar power to a 1.8 OHC engine so may be somewhere near.
  12. Ford 1600 CVH engines.. Mk2 Fiesta XR2, Mk4 Escorts. Some Sierra 1.6 pinto engines.
  13. The discs are 246 x 20mm and are from a Mk1 Carlton up to 1986. I'm not sure if any manufacturers make a drilled or grooved disc in that fitment
  14. Can you post the link please rutts. I can only find 26/64/15 wets on there which are a bit too tall. I
  15. I'm after a pair of tyres as per the title. Preferably 295 or 285 40 15. They don't need to be road legal just as long as they aren't down to the canvas and they hold air. Competition tyres would do. Just to be used for display.
