  3. Clutch advice needed

    Looking for advice Have any of you had any experience of either Hi-Torque or Drive-Touque clutch kits?
  4. I took it to the crusher on the trailer. I did look at re-paring it, but the cost was too high. So went down the re-shell route. the boot lid, doors are on my current A, and the nose-corn is on Simon P Manta A estate.
  5. Work starts on the mk 2 , V6 A series.

    Wow, been a while since I added to this thread. The car made it to the NEC, for the Classic Motor Show, and drew a lot of attention but the gearbox was still whining, so I guess that it was not the thrust bearing after all. In Jan 2017 while cleaning the car I found that the paintwork had micro blistered all over the roof and boot lid. So she went back to the paint shop to get it sorted. In the end, we ended up repainting both rear quarters, boot lid and roof. The engine has now been removed again so I get get the gearbox sent away for a rebuild and hopefully stop the whining.
  6. A series rear quarter panel fit

    Repair panel does not have the lip. You will need to joggle the lip on yourself. To do this you will need a tool like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/221845805694?chn=ps&adgroupid=49962971442&rlsatarget=pla-378951013622&abcId=1129946&adtype=pla&merchantid=113691900&poi=&googleloc=1006656&device=c&campaignid=974960578&crdt=0
  7. 77 GTE engine swaps ?

    Lots of info on the X20Xe swop on the forum. try searching for 16valve, redtop in the search and spend a few evening going through the results.
  8. Manta a petrol tank wanted and brake servo

    Got petrol tank, does have a dent to underside but is solid. £40 collection from Coventry.
  9. My car will also be MOT exempt but I will still get an MOT each year. Rather be safe than sorry.
  10. Would have been worth giving it a coat of paint before you put it back together, or maybe you did but didn't take a pic LOL Good fix BTW.
  11. Along with regalia shop. The green A you can just see was owned by Paul Crotty and is now owned by Graham Taylor.
