    Grabbing brakes

    Hello again I appreciate all the tips that your throwing my way. Thank you. I managed to get an hour in the garage earlier today. I removed the brake drums off & took a look. The brake cylinders look a bit ancient & but the brake shoes seem to be pretty good with plenty of meat left on them. I'm thinking of replacing the brake shoes, cylinders, springs etc with brand new ones. Haven't got round to look at the front brakes yet. I've attached some pics to see what you think?

    Grabbing brakes

    Sorry for the late reply, been really busy. Family birthdays & work. I tried the handbrake test & it did lock the brakes! So I need to take the rear drums off. I will try & get out to the Manta this week & let you know what I find.

    Grabbing brakes

    Hello again Seems I have another issue with my Manta A. It drives well enough but when it comes to braking the wheels seem to lock up! 😯 Braking very slowly is fine, but say coming to a T junction or island & you brake normally, the brakes seems to lock making quite a bang & juddering. 😦 The car passed an MOT last month with no issues. Any idea's? (discs, pads, master cylinder?) 🤔 Please help.

    MANTA A GEARBOX

    Hello again fellow members I want to start by wishing all OMOC members a very 'Merry Christmas'🎄& a Happy New Year 🍻 As some of you know I have a '73 Manta A. Had him for just over a year now. The car sailed through the MOT last month 😀 'HAPPY DAYS' I featured me my Manta in the latest 'Practical Classic's Magazine' but unfortunately they got my first name wrong! Oh well, never mind. 🙄 Over the past year we've attended loads of local shows & next year loads more. I would like to travel with the Manta, further a field to shows & other events. But with having a manual 4 speed gearbox it could be a bit strenuous for me & the car. So I'm toying with the idea of changing the gearbox for a 5 speed! Anybody know of which, if any, 5 speed gearbox would bolt straight on, or with very minor modifications? 🤔
  8. I don't know if anybody else has seen the advert on eBay? £10,000, White Manta A, been restored. Looks great. But it's left hand drive & it's in Poland!

    Wow!!! What a cracking looking A! I love the colour. Looks in really great condition. Chrome looks brilliant too. Seems a good purchase Mick.

    BUMPER OVERIDERS

    Hello again Did you manage to find the set of overiders for my Manta A? Thanks Ian
  11. Hello again fellow members Just spotted on eBay a windscreen, heated rear screen & quarter lights for the Manta A. The seller is based in Boston Lincolnshire. They asking £100 or make them an offer. May be worth keeping as a spare set. Just thought I'd let my fellow members know.

    I definitely wasn't thinking black anyway. Black is one of my favourite colours but not to paint my Manta! Thanks for all the kind comments for my Manta from all you fellow members. Ian
