  1. The input shaft bearing on the 5 speed box is getting noisy. Is it possible to change this without dismantling the gearbox?
  2. The GT had a Zetec engine with type 9 gearbox and standard axle. The Brown Sports Hatch had a Rover V8 with manual gearbox and a standard Manta automatic axle. I don't know who had the mk1 Cav 4dr but there was a wanted ad for 2 replacement front wings written in permanent marker, near the hole in the wing.

    Sticky Manta

    If you've got one, a steam cleaner with wallpaper attachment will do the job quicker than a heat gun. Any adhesive remaining can be removed with Autoglym tar and adhesive remover.
  4. As already stated it sounds like a blockage or fuel pump problem. I'm sure my old mk1 Cavalier used to have a filter inside the pump housing that you could take out and clean. Another thing worth checking is the carb as a lot of them have a small in-built fuel filter, also check the carb diaphragm for a split.
  5. I've been looking for one for a long time. I think Retro Power use Escort ones on their builds.
  6. You might have a pre production car?

    What dampers are you using with the airbags?

    Air Ride Manta

    Like the look of the car lowered, is that the parked height - do you drive at a higher setting? It's something I had thought about doing to mine, but need clearance for speed bumps and gravel roads. My old Sportshatch had 60mm lowered springs and Spax adjustables, the handling was excellent but it always scraped the exhaust over speed bumps, etc. Love the seats, did you retrim the back seats as well as they look like new.
  9. Tank breather pipe, goes into the hole to the right of the tank
  10. I used ethanol resistant hose on my Manta, got it from Advanced Fluid Solutions.
  11. If I remember correctly, it's 8mm id for the return hose and most of the outlet hose and 12mm id hose from the outlet to the pre filter and pump.
  12. Welcome back to the club. Car looks good from the front!
  13. I've had Carlton 2.2 vented discs and calipers on a previous Manta which were better than the standard brakes. My current Manta has got Wilwood Midilite calipers and vented discs which I got as a kit from Rally Design.
  14. Sorted now , thank you.
