This is a salvaged accelerator cable for an Opel Manta or Ascona A series. It would be suitable for the UK market right hand drive versions of the following models:
  • Opel Manta A 1.6, 1.9
  • Opel Ascona A 1.6, 1.9
It is priced at £15, the price includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.

As can be seen from the attached images the outer casing is in very good condition all clean and shiny.

For sale - Opel Manta & Ascona A accelerator cable - £15

The part number shown on the outer casing is 90 076 347 FG 9 82

For sale - Opel part number 9076347

The inner cable is also in very good condition too; I suspect that it has been repaired, replaced or modified from original. Please note the unorthodox but practical repair to the accelerator pedal fitting. It looks like a self tapping screw set in Araldite or similar two pack adhesive. This isn't a pretty fix, but may well work just as well as original spec.

Opel Manta throttle cable - unusual modification at the accelerator pedal end

The last time I checked on the price of replacement Opel Manta A series accelerator cables in Germany they were over £50, at £15 delivered this one is certainly a bargain not to be missed.

This is an unusual and quite rare head gasket for the earliest type of Opel / Vauxhall cam in head (C.I.H.) engine. Unlike the later engines they lack the additional two small bolts that mate the front of the cylinder head to the timing case cover. This early engine would most likely have been seen in the; Opel G.T., Rekord C series and possibly the very earliest of Manta A series and Ascona A series cars. It is a pattern part, suitable for the 1897 cc version of the C.I.H. engine only.

Up for sale are some new old stock exhaust gaskets for the Opel / Vauxhall cam in head (C.I.H.) engine. This engine is mostly seen in the Opel G.T., Manta and Ascona cars, but it was also found in variants of the Rekord, Carlton and even some upmarket Kadett models.

They are priced at £12 each, the price includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.
