Manta Nut (7/8)



  1. This for sale topic may not yet available be for your usergroup
  2. Not a bad price for a hard to source box https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GEARBOX-R25-R28-GU-90372994-Carlton-Senator-C26NE-30NE-C30NE-/363470623812?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m2548.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  3. Safety devices list a cage for manta A will get order soon few dealers over the uk for them
  4. That is such a shame Mike, if you were UK I’d buy the whole lot off to finish!
  5. I let now complete, had to build up the surface lip with weld where someone had modified it previous but had t really repair it well. also re welded up all the crap vacuum holes that had been drilled into the plenum, forgot to take before pics, it’s come out well and the cast ally is of good quality at least. Just need a throttle body now and inlet is complete.
  6. It’s an exclusive coupe I’d like it to be correct. the rear bench matches the door cards so I guess I need to match the front seats please excuse my lack of knowledge im an A series man.
  7. Been sizing up the jenvey plenum I’ve landed for bit a lot of monies, I have various other inlet bits, I need to have this more towards the engine for clearance but will work as I do t intend using throttle bodies for the turbo engine as a pain to setup and balance with forced induction.
  8. Hi all, trying to get a match up for my new acquisition. these are the current seats so I’m after either a good pair of fronts with the same cloth as the rears (door cards match the rear bench) or visa versa
  9. I looked into that so much to make it work, god knows how they managed it as there is so little room to drop the glass into the quarter with a mechanism. looked at Mk4 escort cabriolet mechs but don’t drop the full way. also a BMW setup but the mech too big to house.
  10. Ah good idea with the bass drum pedal! will look into that i had a bid pedal box before this setup to lose the servo for more room with hydraulic clutch on it too All Internal. Couldn’t keep as in the way for power steering column and I wanted the servo assist.
  11. Yeah the Vauxhall nova has that setup I thought about it in a previous build but would lose the heater as you said. clutch was hydraulic before on the pedal box inboard, but I’ve had to make up a stand-alone In board one now, made it with what I had lying around and the old cylinder. it’s finished now forgot to take a pic of finished article. just need to re engineer the throttle cable now, I may utilise the manta mount again to keep simple but I don’t think it places the pedal where I actually want it this time
  12. Bit more today, rust repair mostly and filling up unwanted holes. dash is looking sweet.
