Re: Minder Capri caught fire

Its odd that, having bought my first Capri in 1985, and owned literally dozens over the next 30 years, I learned a lot of stuff, but these days it never occurs to me that other owners don't know it all already. It takes random posts to jog my memory. Maybe I need to start a new thread titled 'oh by ...

Re: Minder Capri caught fire

Or, as happened to me twice, on different Capris, with the 32/36 carb, the metal fuel inlet pipe can come out of the carb. That is a superb heads up and info Martin. I guess the same could be true of the fuel return also? Could you clarify please, are these pipes simply a push in friction fit then?...

Yup, that all looks much better (although I personally preferred the first filler cap)

So, next job....................... get the top mount winged washers lined up. :whistle:

Re: Minder Capri caught fire

It doesnt look like the bonnet has been bent so it seems the firemen went to the trouble of opening it with care! Often happens that people see the smoke and immediately rush round and open the bonnet. In goes a lot of nice oxygen and the flames flare up! Then they drop the bonnet and run! Best bet...

Re: Minder Capri caught fire

What's the likely cause of that then do you think? Having seen them deteriorate pretty quickly I would put money on perished fuel pipes. :agree: Either perished or Mr Ethanol has been having a munch on them.

Re: This season, I be mostly..

Whereabouts Tom?

Been quoted £295 by Anglian Tuning Centre in Oulton Broad to remap my Z4 20iS M-Sport with rolling road before and after tweaks included. Will take it from 184 BHP (199 lbs/ft) to 270 BHP (310 lbs/ft).

That's what I call bang for buck.

Re: SGS Engineering

To be fair, my recommendation of SGS was based on the quality of the product.
I ordered, it turned up, it is well made and it works.
So I have no real experience of the people behind the goods.

Re: Number Plate Lights

I took the old screws out, cleaned up the metal insert, then replaced the screws with 10mm hex bolts which came from somewhere else on the car, can't remember where after all these years.Might have been mounting bolts from under the dash somewhere? A word of caution though. I once thought I'd be cle...

Re: 2.8i cutting out won’t run

OK, so another straw to grasp at for you.
I think if memory serves me right that the loom runs down the driver's side sill, under the plastic trim.
Again, many times I've seen the trim screws cutting through the wires if there's been a little lack of care when fitting the trim back on.
