OK, I don't really want to sell all this deep down, because if I wanted to find it all again, it would no doubt be a bloody nightmare!
But I'm giving up looking for a Manta 400R so no real need for it all...
Here's what's included:
** 2.0 16V C20XE Engine - Been sat/turned over now and again, and turns nice and freely by hand.
** 1.8 Manta Gearbox - Bought from respected OMOC member.
** Brand new SBD Twin Weber 45 Inlet Manifold!
** Conversion (Alloy) engine mounts!
** 1.8 Manta Distributor setup with mount/pulleys!
** 1.8 Manta TCI unit.
** Alloy Big wing sump & pickup pipe!
** A dipstick?
** Brand new (Believed conversion) clutch kit/Release bearing.
** Propshaft -- Unsure which exact model Manta.
** Wiring loom and injection system/Injectors from XE.
** Manta pedal box!
** Original XE exhaust manifold.
** XE inlet manifold/Air box
** Some pipework
** A smaller flywheel which I believe is needed for conversion?
** Correct XE ECU and wiring, all connectors look good!
** Throttle cable.
** Clutch cable.
** Speedo cable.
** Heat shield.
** XE MAF sensor/housing.
Price? Just £1k for the whole lot.
I think all that's needed (Apart from odds and sods/bits of pipework etc) is an exhaust manifold, or re-fabrication of the one included maybe...Not willing to split as I'm in no rush to sell at all, and I'd rather everything went as one lump seeing as I'm probably never going to own a Manta.
Collection only from Burnley/Lancashire.
SOLD AS SEEN!
Light rebuild recommended! as I was going to do, and I'd suggest anybody else should do.
The lump, turns over easily by hand, all the inlet manifold studs and exhaust manifold studs look good. But personally I'd pop loads of nice new bits on it before throwing in a car. Has knock sensor, starter motor, alternator and some other bits. The dizzy bolts are missing (I've lost them after I removed dizzy to sit the engine in the bay of my Mk1 golf) Will probably be knocking about somewhere...
Original inlet manifold and air box.
Original XE exhaust manifold and a Manta propshaft of some sort.
Manta 1800 Gearbox with mount and a release bearing. The clutch fork is inside the bellhousing too.
An 'Unused'! clutch kit. Comprising pressure plate and disc, they are what I assume is needed for the conversion. There's also a flywheel, much smaller than the one fitted to the XE engine. Some additional brackets and a dust cover plate shown as well.
Loom along with ECU, injector rail/Injectors/Fuel pressure regulator and ignition coil? All connectors look good.
Manta pedals and what I think is a throttle cable/bracket?
MAF & some little leccy part and some spare XE conrods, although not in great shape
Getting to the rarer bits now...A brand new SBD twin 45 weber inlet manifold.
Alloy engine mounts, pickup pipe and dipstick!
Manta 1800 dizzy setup and bracket, also with the TCI unit? plugged in! And another sprocket and belt!
Alloy big wing sump! And some sort of heat shield.
