Omega General Help / MV6 Facelift bodykit
« on: 27 April 2022, 08:47:48 »
Please does anyone on here know whether the rear bumper on a facelift MV6 is the same as the one normally fitted to all Omega, or is it a special "Prodrive" moulding like the rear spoiler and front bumper?
I can't tell any difference, but haven't been able to put one next to another or see if there are any identifying logos/numbers on the inside.

Does anyone have an Omega Elite self levelling air pump in good working condition? Thanks.

Omega Gallery / Y11VXL MV6

Finally got to find an appealing setting and decent light to show off the Satin Red paintwork on Y11 VXL better than a dreary day on the industrial estate...

Hoping for similar weather for VBOA show at Sywell early July

Offered on here before listing elsewhere, was taken from 115,000mile car and was working fine, but could probably benefit from an oil and filter change. 100 collected from Northants (if possible within current restrictions). Carriage by arrangement, would have to be palletised, so extra cost.

Omega General Help / Y32SE cold start low revs
« on: 06 January 2021, 09:19:50 »
Please can anyone tell me if they know why my MV6 doesn't seem to have any cold start enrichment or raised idle speed.  It always starts and has a strong battery, but it just sits at about 700-800rpm from stone cold, as if it is warm, when it definitely isn't.  Is here a value from the engine temp sensor that I can check?  Any other ideas will be much appreciated.  It won't be long before the engine comes out for a manual conversion and attention to all the oil leaks, but I'd like to sort this while it is still in one piece.  Thanks

Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / Wanted 3.2 Alternator

Please has anyone got a spare 3.2V6 Alternator that they'd like to sell me.  My spare one got broken trying to take it apart to refurb, so now I need another.

Omega Gallery / New ex-GMP MV6 purchase

Looking forward to showing this off at Beaulieu this weekend.

Still shocked at how well it has been looked after, for an ex-service car.

Omega General Help / How to move drivers seat without power
« on: 21 August 2020, 11:51:24 »
This is probably common knowledge to all the Omega cognoscienti, but it was new to me.  During the strip down of my 3.2 spares car it became clear that I should have removed the drivers seat before taking the battery and all the engine wiring out, because in order to access the seat mounting bolts the powered drivers seat has to be slid all the way back to access the front ones and all the way forward to get to the rears.  On the passenger seat it was possible to hotwire the motor, but for some reason on the drivers seat, perhaps because it has a memory module, this didn't work...
Fortunately there is a failsafe screw in the end of the motor, which you can turn with a suitable flat bladed screwdriver.

I'm sure if you had a suitable adaptor an electric drill would speed this up no end, because it requires a huge number of turns to move the seat even a small distance. Anyway sometime later we had revealed the rear bolts holding the seat frame down and it could be removed.

Anyone else going here? The entry is limited to 1000 pre-purchased tickets only, and you have to turn up in a Vauxhall.
I know some of the ABS members are going.
The more Omegas go, the less room there will be for Arden blue Corsas and Astras ;).  Sign up here:

Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / Breaking 3.2 Elite Saloon
« on: 28 July 2020, 13:30:48 »
As per subject.  The engine, wheels and all the interior switches are spoken for, but pretty much everything else is up for grabs.  Parts can be shipped or collected from Near Daventry, Northants.
Not many body panels aren't damaged or rusty, but the sunroof works and I definitely don't need that, or the beige leather interior ;)

Omega General Help / Tech 2 to borrow
« on: 27 July 2020, 22:07:10 »
Please does anyone in the Northants area have a Tech 2 I can borrow, or possibly buy if they don't need it anymore?  I am hoping that it might help me diagnose my A/C problems and intermittent engine temp gauge.
Thank you.

Matched pair of ex-service MV6s,  not something you see everyday :)

Post MAJOR service engine bay just prior to fluids being added.  :)
MOTed and ready for summer use once the lockdown is over.
