  6. Hey guys, a bit of back ground knowledge, building an XE chevette, with manta gearbox and manta B rear axle (yes its 2 inches wider blah) and i was given a prop shaft and was told thats what i need. does the manta A and manta B have different prop shafts. this is what i have: Axle with clamps. all good this prop shaft which i have been told is manta, in which both ends are to small for the fittings. the clamp end, the inner circles are way to small, and the spline end the prop shaft spline wont go on the box. and then the chevette prop shaft, which goes over the spline end of the box, but is a different fitting to the axle end. has anyone got any pics of a manta B prop shaft. and also, is there a bearing to go on the end with the clamps? many thanks.
  7. finally sourced a set of these. good timessss

  11. Hey guys, just a quick question, how many gears does the getrag gearbox have. the one which bolts up the the redtop engine, i have one in my shed, and i linked up the selector and can only select 5 gears ( im guessing 1,2,3,4 and reverse) is this correct or is reverse some where else lol. many thanks
