So long 'Phil the Greek'. We won't see his like again.
Time for Anne to step up and take on the mantle methinks. She learned well from her father. ;)

NGK AP6fs 🙂
I may be wrong, but aren't those the tapered seat ones for a Pinto?
The 2.8i has flat seats and a sealing washer.
I'd also recommend getting ones with a resistor if you still want to listen to your old FM radio.

NGK would be my recommendation - BCPR6ES I think.

Re: Knocking noise

Before you get too deep into it, are you sure it's a mechanical clunk, and not a knock being generated by driveline shunt due to the engine faltering? I had something similar years back - turned out to be the coil breaking down. But if it is something like that, how come he's only getting it in low...

Before you get too deep into it, are you sure it's a mechanical clunk, and not a knock being generated by driveline shunt due to the engine faltering? It is quite easy to think it's a mechanical problem when in fact that is just a symptom. The 2.8i is very susceptible to weak mixture, which can give...

Re: Opie Oils

I've spoken to them on many occasions and this week in fact. Don't think they are the cheapest around, but with service like that maybe worth paying a little extra :cool: Agreed they're not the cheapest. But I tend to keep an eye on their flash sales and buy in bulk then. I like the fact they are a...

Re: Opie Oils

Hi all, not sure if anyone uses this company, but I can strongly recommend them. Really know their stuff and always happy to advise on oils, filters etc. I've been using them for my Z4s and their service is excellent. For example, they mistakenly sent me 2x 5 litre bottles of oil when I'd ordered 3...

Re: Newbeeeee .....engine size change 1.6 to2.0

Forget drums buy disk kit. And then go and ask all the Tickford owners why they get so fed up un-seizing the rear brakes. Even when the cars were pushed hard the rear discs were hardly noticeable in their effects. Absolutely no need for rear discs on a stock 4-cylinder Capri. In fact, I wouldn't ev...

Re: Parasitic draw

I think some had an easily removable diode pack with the brushes fitted in. The Bosch is most common and very easy to swap. It`s actually the regulator and brushes, the diode pack is internal - but as you say it IS easily removed, you can even do it in situ. Ah ok, that's cleared that up. Electrick...

I assume you gave the nearside cluster a good check over and clean at the same time? I wont lie, I did check the cluster on the near side for cracking but neglected to clean up the connections :roll: Just took her out about 5 minutes ago and it would seem that heater blower has quite an effect on t...

Re: Capri 2.8 struts

It is perfectly acceptable to use standard Capri struts. You will need to swap over all the braking bits etc, but you can fit them with uprated cartridge type dampers and they'll easily cope, plus probably be a lot cheaper. I fitted Gaz dampers on one, set to their softest setting they were fine. Yo...
