Re: converting a gearbox mechanical speedometer to electronic

HOwzit Chris,

I've got a rover 3.5 V8 thats going into my Manta, so I'm also after the stronger rear end. But I dont want to modify the suspension too much, apart from fitting an LSD and new half shalfts with a five stud fitment.

Thanks for the help

Re: converting a gearbox mechanical speedometer to electronic

Hey JC,

slightly off topic, but did your car come with a five stud fitment? I've got an Opel Manta 71 that I am about to start working on, and I want to have the five stud instead of the standard four stud fitment. If you changed the hubs could you let me know which bits you used?

Thanks
John
