Im pretty sure the 1159 and 1256 share the same starter?.....

Unless nz are different  they are the same.

Just auto v manual are different i think.

Are they not just the generic Lucas inertia starter found in just about every British car of the era?

My overly high compression Escort used to kill them all the time and since I was working at a wreckers I used to just grab another from the pile, Vauxhall, Morris, Leyland, Ford, Rover etc all went straight in and worked fine. Only difference I ever found was Ford was 3 bolt mount and the others were 2.

I ended up getting a brand new one off a local company im friends with. And yes i know its probably very expensive but i wanted it asap. $285 for a brand new one never been used.

Back in the day that was my least favourite Viva but, like many things I didn't like much when they were new, the styling has grown on me to the point where I'd have one now in the right circumstances. 

Alex, you need this to go with the other Vauxhalls. Might be a bit of a fun project for Hannah.
