    Metal injector mounts

    Does anyone know of or have a pair of metal fuel injector mounts? One of my plastic ones has a hairline crack in it. I've seen them before, we're they standard on the Monza?

    Old (pref suspect or damaged) Injection Loom

    Might be a good idea Pete. I want to upgrade the insulation to a silicone fibreglass with silicone tape to bond it together. Edelshmiede look to only do a stock replacement and that's not good enough for that sort of money. These were working class sports cars and now have got the "classic" badge which ups the price to megabucks.

    Old (pref suspect or damaged) Injection Loom

    Looking for one to rebuild with new wire and proper modern heat shielding, then use it to replace mine. I've never taken one apart so I don't know what I'm facing hence why I would rather have a suspect or known faulty one. I'm certain I can do it, but best have one that's knackered to start with. There is nothing wrong with mine it works fine but the wires are getting a bit stiff and the useless black plastic shielding is split so it's more of a prevention measure to rebuild one.
  4. Hi there. It might seem like a strange request, but I would like to get hold of a old GT/E "L or LE" injection loom that is either suspect or completely baked and hard as I am looking to do a project over the winter to rewire one. This could be a benefit to members as I am looking to do a article for the mag on how to do it and protect it from future damage! If you have one that has damaged connectors (apart from the ECU connector that must be A-OK), please get in touch as this still might be of use. I'm willing to pay about £10 - £15 + £5 postage for one that's suspect or baked so if you have one and its gathering dust then please get in touch and also let me know. Also the rubber bulkhead bung MUST be present. Cheers Bill

    Manta GT/E (Exclusive spec)

    Well Off she goes to the body shop! Lets see what happens in about 3 weeks! I'm quite liking the borrowed set of BMW wheels actually!

    Manta GT/E (Exclusive spec)

    Repairs and respray about 2 - 3 weeks. I'm paying extra to get a full respray done. He's going to attack a few bodywork issues to make her like new again. She will then get shipped back to mine and I will reassemble the underbonnet and reinstall the interior, rear lighting and bumper. That will take about 2 - 3 Days. I've removed everything on the front end that would compromise the respray, including unthreading the loom from the front end back to the bulkhead . I've removed all the numberplate lights out of the bumper and unthreaded the loom from the rear panel etc. It's like last year all over again!

    Manta GT/E (Exclusive spec)

    A Little update for you all. The car goes in for repairs on the 6th July. The body shop I'm using is run by a friend of mine and he is well into his cars of the 80's and early 90's. I will upload a few pictures tomorrow of the car. I have stripped out most of the under bonnet (again)! so it doesn't make re-spraying a nightmare, and he has promised me that he will mask up all my work so my underside and engine bay wont get covered in overspray! The project now is removing all the Interior, as I don't want crud all over my nice Chicago Grey seats, door cards and carpets!
  12. Jealous Much. I want one.... OK one of each Ascona & Manta!
