    Manta A series rebuild - Phase 2 C20 LET

    Attended the Sunday scramble at Bicester heritage centre on Sunday, nearly didn’t make it! Why I thought I would just get in the car after laying it up in the summer and it would just go..... charged battery in and it wouldn’t start, ok starter motor I thought, so fitted the nice new starter I have for the turbo lump and nothing, turns out no earth from block to body, the odd thing is it has never had one since I rebuilt it lol, so god knows how it’s been earthing itself lol anyway it had a few more snaps over social media... Also, been asked to attend the NEC in March with the OMOC!

    Manta A series rebuild - Phase 2 C20 LET

    Went up the farm and did some stuff. Got the hatch running and now up sale. As I’m losing my space up there. So it has to go. also extracted the TKO600 from the V8 build to see where it’s at for putting into this build. got t home and went to mate it up to the bell housing I kept hold of from the black turbi a I sold a while ago. Well it doesn’t line up as I thought the would. It’s for Borg Warner boxes type 9 etc which I thought was the same as the top being top loader bolt pattern. It is a shame as it was perfectly spaced for the input shaft. So I need to come up with a plan for an adapter etc. MORE WORK! Or I just stick with an r28 and see how long it lasts 🤔 few pics One bonus is the shifter just needs switching round to be even better placement than the one in the car currently, I can move the tunnel back to where it should be and use a stock centre consol again. Pretty apauling but that TKO is actually brand new!! Ashamed of myself for letting it get that bad. Itl clean up. I’ve checked inside and it’s all good.
