I bought the car 6 months ago and I start to like it very much. I have some problemm with its engine, but it is now ok .... but I would like to know more about it, so I want to begin learn something about mechanics. For that I'll need a manual that I don't have. Can someone help me?

Thank you very much.

PS This is my fist time I post so if I've posted in the wrong thread please forgive me.

Hi;
I have a manual for the B series Manta, but, I think it's in Dutch. Would that help?

Haynes Manual

Opel (B Series) Ascona & Manta
Ascona 75 to 81
Manta 75 to 88

ISBN 1 85010 578 2

It should be available from a library, or maybe even new/2nd hand from Amazon.

I took a look at the manual when I got home and it's in english! I never really looked at it. If you want it, I'll sell it. It's a Haynes for the B series Manta/Ascona.

Hello there, Help please

Hi guys,

I am new here, and a little bit puzzeled:)

First of all, Thanks God i found a forum like this. I have Opel Ascona b 2.0 1978, engine from Rekord with vertical double-throat carb. I am a student and don't have incomes, just my tip. I don't want to go to the mechanics, i like to learn about my car everything. I have seen the book for Opel manual, but it is on dutch and i won't understand a word. If someone can help me and send me a Manual on English, Serbian, German, even on Dutch if there is no way:)

Thanks a lot,

Filip

Filip,

I'm thinking you mean to put in a "short throw shifter", to have less travel of the shifter knob from front to rear. Searching in the forum for "short throw" brought up this one. I don't know whether your Ascona B has the same type 4-speed like our normally older Opels here in the USA, but I think that you can use this thread to find out what you have to do.

Get the Haynes manual that fellow members posted above, it is not very expensive, and within months it will save you more than you will spend to buy it! I have it, and it is very good. Also covers the later 2.0E EFI engines , should you consider a swap in the future...

If your car has the original 4-speed gearbox, then the modification our friends "linked" you to will be doable. Keep in mind though that the hand effort during gear changes will be increased!
