  1. Group 5 - Brakes
    Hey guys, I need the size and thread profile for the fitting that the brake booster hose connects to. I have a manual trans, so the one with all the extra fitting points is unnecessary. If anyone knows where I can find what I'm looking for, then please let me know.
  2. 1A - Starting and Charging System
    Hey guys, I bought a 1968 Kadett not too long ago but it had no keys. I bought a new ignition switch off amazon (Bosch 0342311007) and would like to replace my current switch, only issue is that I have no idea how to remove it. Any ideas?
  3. 1A - Starting and Charging System
    Hey guys, made a post a few days ago with no luck. I removed the old ignition switch, cleaned it out, then reinstalled it, but upon turning the key to (what I presume) is the start position, it does not appear to spring back when I let go of it. Any ideas? Note: the car does not run (yet) and...
  4. 1A - Starting and Charging System
    Hey guys, opened up the electrical ignition switch to clean it and found that the spring back function (for starting the car) works just fine, but when I put it back in the car and try to use the key the cylinder feels A. like its kind of sticky and somewhat hard to turn and B. doesn't seem to...
  5. Kadett A/B
    Hey guys I recently got new keys for my car from Opelspyder (If you happen to see this thank you they're great) and I'm having some issues with the door locks specifically so I have some questions: 1. Do Opels lock from the outside with the key? (my dad tells me that not every car did back in...
  6. 6A - Engine Mechanical
    Hey guys, I noticed a pretty bad leak from my oil pump cover and wanted to replace the gasket. Would the 1.9L gasket from OGTS work on my 1.5L engine? Link for reference: https://www.opelgtsource.com/search/2697/details
  7. 6D - Exhaust System
    Does anyone know where I can get my hands on a new headpipe for my car? I can get the muffler from OGTS and could probably get new piping from just about anywhere, but this headpipe is eluding me.
  8. 7B Transmission
    Does anyone know how much torque the 4 speed manual gearbox can handle? Sincerely Paul
  9. 6A - Engine Mechanical
    So I was reading an old thread and saw something along the lines of any 4-cyl valve cover fitting any 4-cyl engine. is this the same for the gaskets? Would a 1.9 gasket fit a 1.5 engine? I am in need of a new valve cover gasket and would like to clear this up.
  10. 1B - Ignition System
    what screws do I need to secure my vacuum advance to the distributor? I seem to have misplaced the old ones and after going through my garage I was unable to find them.
  11. Kadett A/B
    Hey everyone, I'm new here and I have a 1968 Kadett LS after a few months of effort I am getting close to getting it running. My current issue is that I have no idea where to find the timing marks on my car. If anyone knows where I can find these marks I would greatly appreciate an answer.
  12. Kadett A/B
    Hey, sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this. I recently purchased a home made turbo manifold and intake with injectors for the OHV engine, and was told that the previous owner had used a megasquirt system. I went and brought myself a megasquirt system with harness and is wondering if...
  13. General Opel GT Discussions
    Hi all, I'm new to the group, but not new to enthusiast forums for my other vehicles. I was looking to add another vehicle to my stable, and in talking with a friend of mine he showed me a vehicle left from his parent's estate that he wants to sell. From what I've read here, at wikipedia, and...
