  3. Some bits done, but painter is well behind now getting the rest of the panels done. Aero catches cut into bonnet, will be painted biddy colour. been playing with the rear lighting too. Grills are painted too, such a huge difference sprucing them up. badges painted up too.

  9. Hiya - pm ing you now
  10. hello mates, just got a set of 16" Borbet type A wheels, 7.5" and 9", I'm thinking of buying 195/45 & 225/45 tires. I would appreciate hearing your opinions on what's the best tires sizes for the set. thnx.
  11. Last week
  12. I think this part is the same on all mk1 Cavaliers, Ascona B's and Manta B/C
  13. Mk1 Cavalier Coupe Ignition Switch After one of the above for a '79.....plus the retaining screws. Anybody have one or tell me what other models have compatible switches or even part numbers to source? Cheers
  14. I've never tried using the hole to actually 'back off' the adjustment and to be honest I'd bet you can't get to raise the adjustment arm and turn the wheel anyway .its not to my knowledge designed to be done this way. Providing the drums don't have a huge wear lip in them they should slide off the shoes.once the wheel is off a sharp crack on the edge of the drum should be enough to free them off or can usually be done through the spokes off the wheel with suitable blipping tool.knocking bar etc etc!. If they are rusted to stop the wheel turning.
  15. I never had any problem, except once and everything got destroyed
  16. Soooo, if I was rebuilding/removing the drums (Haynes manual is a bit vague) where is the adjuster to make the shoes back off? Is it the small hole in the face of the front rotor? And does this have to be rotated until it lines up with something?
  17. I'm looking for speedo cable for my Manta A if anyone has one they can spare please?

  19. No problem. As you say, it could be the best on the market. Agreed re the auto, but somebody might not be too bothered. I'd imagine it has led a pampered life in Japan. One wonders if any Manta's found there way to Japan! The same thought occurred to me about Malta and Cyprus as both would be RHD.
  20. Forgive me for raining on your post mate ,but I did spot this one weeks ago and this could be the best calibra on the market to buy at a price though,,but as danny says its an auto,which have their place,but its not a drivers car end of.

  25. I have the full setup. Good engine - it has the Opel spark plug cover, 2 x 1.8 gearbox (one broken the other bought unknown but assured it's good) brand new Ashley manifold, 2 x ECUs ( one chipped, one std), wiring loom etc. Was fitted to mine when I bought it, it now has a 3 liter 24v. Wasn't planning on selling it but doubt I'll ever use it again as I have my eye on a Saab turbo lump for when the 24v goes bang. PM me if interested. Thanks, Chris.
