  4. Hi there ! I need to get rid of my contacts so i need this Bosch breakless setup. Its for the 1.3s engine. This is like the one on these pictures. Please PM me or just reply here Thank you
  5. I will keep a full diary and photos of all progress made.As i am not in a hurry so I will collect all parts first and then make all repairs. To be honnest I study my Msc in Quality Assurance so i have not as much time i like to have.... The topic about what is called Macedonia is HUGE.(and off topic). Just ask yourself, can French people claim H.M. Queen Elisabeth being a famous French queen??? (!!!!)
  6. Today i drove it for about 30 kms... It has a very short gearbox and final ratio. With 4th gear and 100 kms per hour i have 3600 rpms. The bad stuff: The carburator need cleaning , a good complete engine overhaul as it has 280.000 kms on it. I will keep it original. I am thinking of clange the stock contact ingnition system to electronic one. I must find a geniue piece of cloth like the one it has so to fix the 2 front seats. The good points: No noise bang or rattles. The engine gear box is nice and all gears are smooth to engage. All locks lights and all work as it should be. I will make a good restoration plan so to have a nice result. Thank you all for the welcome and I feel comfortable enough to ask your help. Oh, Thesaloniki is a great city to live and it is the capital city of Macedonia a North Greek territory.

  11. Hi All I just joined in the Club and i hope to help and to be helped. I know many about cars as i have owned for 13 years an Opel Kadett D and writing in mk1oc.com. Now i have bought an Opel Manta B 1.3S GT 240.000 km with sunroof . The car is totally unsprayed and in original condition. There are no holes no previous accidents no . The seller was first owner and gave me the receipt of purchase in Deutsche Marks ... I will upload pictures so you can see the car and i guess that if i need your advice i can ask for it ! Thank you for accepting me as a member of the manta club forum. My best wishes from Sunny Greece.
