  2. Rev counter

    Working rev counter wanted for 1983 1.8s Berlinetta please. What sort of price if available ? Thanks
  3. Tachometer not going above 2800 rpm

    Only noticed fault recently, had car new in 1983 and as far as I know fault has appeared this year.
  4. Manta B 1.8s Brake Conversion Front

    The standard brakes on my 1.8s work fine, once I had put astra sliders in with the grease helix machined into them.
  5. Tachometer not going above 2800 rpm

    Thanks for that will have to find another tacho then. Cheers
  6. 1983 1.8S Berlinetta, Engine revs freely and runs fine aprox 90kmiles. Rev counter sticks at approx 2800 rpm. Any suggestions please? (do not say put your foot down. Speedo rises no ptoblem but tach sticks at 2800 rpm) All electrics OK as far as I can tell. Green wire on coil looks ok. It has a Lucas coil not the original Bosch one, could that be the issue ? Is the ignition module likely to have any effect ? Thanks Dave
  7. Engine earth strap location- Manta

    Thanks all, went for easiest option first and changed the braided copper earth from battery to chassis for a heavy duty copper one. This seems to have sorted my intermittent starting issue. Cheers
  8. Should my 1983 1.8s Manta have an engine earth strap? and if so where is it located please ?
  9. 10/40 or 5/30 Engine oil.

    Broughton, Flintshire. We are almost neighbours
  10. 10/40 or 5/30 Engine oil.

    Thank you, that is the answer I expected.
  11. 10/40 or 5/30 Engine oil.

    Hi I think i have asked this question before but can not find the answer. My 1982 1.8s Berlinetta is usually on the road for the summer months only, is it OK to use 5/30 engine oil or is it beneficial to use 10/40 ? Thanks
  12. anyone in Crewe or nearby Cheshire?

    If the car has not been run for some time the fuel seems to "run back" to the tank if that makes sense, After laying mine up for the winter I always have to disconnect pipe from fuel pump and use a siphon to drag fuel back to the pump, then it starts first time. hth
  13. Hi how are they sorting your battery shelf please? it looks like mine needs a bit of attention. Cheers
