  1. Clutch Cable for 2.0 GTE

    Mine snapped right by the entrance to the bulkhead. I am hoping there arent; too many choices or differences in clutch cable. Gearbox is standard 5 Speed , Engine is 2.0 1988. If you have one please let me know and also whether Paypal is good .

  6. Manta b coupe roof

    Is it ok to cut a roof off and weld another on??? Wont you have to have some sort of VOSA or test after? I have been advised to sort my sunroof issues by cutting the roof off and putting another on.... I am sure there must be more to it then just an angle grinder and a spot welder??
  7. To be honest, after missing out on the Manta A needing work that went for 1100 pounds on ebay a few months before I found the Corvair in Northampton. And the front view and rear lights reminded me of the Manta A which is why i bought it. I learnt a lot about these cars and the pictures you see are how the car was during its restoration. Also , It had the "CORSA" logo on the front wings and yes, many times people would comment on how beautiful Vauxhall had originally made the Corsa and how it had lost it's appeal over time :-) You see, no-one knows that Americans made rear engined and air cooled cars.. And here is something else for the purists on here. The Chevrolet Corvair missed out by two months on being the first production Turbocharged car when the early model Turbo was released in 1961. The Corsa model I had was originally a turbocharged car and the Turbo used the blow-through method where the carb sat to the side of the Turbo. Very primitive but enough for 180BHP in 1965.
  8. No sooner said than done ! My Corvair was a 65 Corsa model which was even rarer than the standard one. One of the best handling classics I have had. Enjoy the pictures. And tiny bit of Manta A from the front :-)
  9. I have almost bought an Opel GT on a few occasions. Opted for a P1800s instead first trime and a Chevrolet Corvair (rear engined and air cooled) the second time. I regret my choices now .
  10. Getrag 240 Gear Linkage Wanted

    Very quickly - my gear lever moves all over the place and this plate is loose. Can the bolts come out or might I need a new one like the OP.. Is it a common problem?

  12. GTE arrived today and now to work!

    The latest update ! Well, lots of wiring and messing around. I have finally worked out the headlights thanks to this forum. I now have sidelights and dipped beams on the outer and then all four on full beam when i pull the stalk. I have installed a new relay as the old one was wired incorrectly. Plenty of connection issues with the indicators and I have to remove both side repeaters, both rears and the front driver side and clean the contacts before I finally go them all working both sides. I struggled with the heater all day . The fan did not come on.. After some searching on here and then removing the plug in the engine bay,m taking off the cover and spinning the fan the blower started working. However it only works on position TWO but I will take that for now... Slowly but surely everything is starting to come back to life and work... But I removed the glovebox radio surround today and am faced with a random selection of wires... I do have the Haynes manual but if anyone knows the connections to the clock , cigar lighter. cigar lighter bulb and radio then I would be extremely grateful. Once all this is wired up and I put the interior glove box trim and so on then I can try to start the car. The question that remains is am I supposed to hear a fuel pump when i turn the key to position 2?? I dont hear anything at all. This worries me a little unless I have a mechanical pump?? Anyway , thats todays update so if someone does know the 1987 clock/./cigar lighter/radio wires and their colours please do let me know. Enjoy the rest of Sunday :-) Paul
