Just got my hands on an '85 GTE Manta Hatch
Paid £62 on ebay for it
Spent £110 in diesel collecting it from the other end of the country

Obviously its full of rust (What do you expect for that price??) but I'm having trouble with the ignition system...

Does anyone have the color codes for the wires on the ignition column and the part number for the relay near the Battery (4 pin with green wiring)

Please help, I just want to hear the engine to make me feel better about the rust...


The car has all it original fittings, plus the addition of a FSE boost valve, and once restored should be lovely ;) , if anyone knows any companies that will supply the UK with realistic prices of panels please let me know also...


Thanks
Martin

THe "bloke" refused to deal with me because I was "foreign" - would not even let me get my Freight Forwarding agent pick stuff up directly from him!
So be sure the let him know that "Jim from New Zealand "recommended" him to you........
