  1. yes it doe on the other side Tuns out the threads were a bit screwed up ran a M10 with 1.5 pitch tap through it and the bolts went in.
  2. Got my little guage from amazon, is this the right thing ?
  3. One on way! Never thought of that thx !!
  4. Got some M10 with a 1.25 pitch to try... no good So M10 pitch 1.5 no good as well. The M9 ones push straight into the holes. I am a bit stuck what to try next.
  5. could it be that the threads were stripped and redone a bigger size ??
  6. My mistake the origional ones are m9. They dont fit the S.A. head.
  7. Hope someone can help me. I bought a replacement engine for my A, its a 1.9 from South Africa. Looks identicle BUT when i come to swap the manifold the bolts dont fit. The origional one has m8 bolts and the S.A. one looks like M10 but the thread seems tight when i put them in. Are these the right bolts ???? TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION Thread Size M10 Thread Diameter 10mm Thread Pitch 1.50mm Flange Diameter 21mm Spanner Size 15mm Length (L) 35mm
  8. Think so, but new engine in will see what happens. Just waiting for the exhaust manifold coming back, managed to snap all 6 bolts getting the exhaust off 😞

  22. Hi, Will a "B" back box fit an "A" ? I see lots of manta b exhaust parts for sale but not many manta a.
