Re: Seriously contemplated changing: my car..

Before I bought the Capri I had a couple of other choices swimming around in my head. Land Rover S3. I test drove a SWB ex-Army one, with a canvas roof and a folding windscreen, 24v FFR one. That was cool. But decided against it in the end,twice as many axles and gearboxes and oil seals... lots of ...

There were a multitude of U-Boats had something very similar ;)
And how did that work out😁
They were all sunk by irate Navy boat drivers who were fed up not being able to overtake them!

Re: Dash clocks

Pretty sure if you go back to the 'home' page for the Laserpage you'll find a how to section.
My old mate Tony Holt did a complete write up and wittily entitled it 2-6 Heave.

Edit: Well I can't work out how to do it now!

Re: 2.8 injection engine re build

Another daft question maybe, but do you have the caps the right way round? Plain round cap (no spring etc) goes on the radiator. What we would all consider to be a proper radiator cap goes on the bottle to the side. Contrary to popular misconception this is NOT an expansion tank. It is a de-gassing ...

Re: X Frame info

I'll bite 😁 .Why do you fit this X frame thing ,which to me looks like something Isambard Brunel could have come up with , I mean , obviously to stop Capri wavin her arse about ,but wouldn't a simple panard rod be better?

Re: X Frame info

Also do a bit of measuring. If the two sides are not spaced the same down the leaf spring you could inadvertently introduce a bit of preload. Bit of a bugger if it's a fight to get round a roundabout but relaxing pings you off at the first exit. :xd: Or worse the other way round, once you're on the ...

Re: X Frame info

Ah, with you now.
I would personally do it all up tight-ish then lower it down. Finish tightening the axle clamps, then slightly loosen the leaf spring plates, bounce the rear a few times to be sure it's settled, then torque them up.

Re: X Frame info

Not sure there was ever a defined sequence?
You must do it with the weight on the wheels though. If you do it while the suspension is hanging you will introduce pre-load and in fact the leaf spring clamps may not be in exactly the right place on the spring.

Re: hardened valve seats

If the OP is dismantling the engine anyway, then surely fit the seats while it's apart.
A word of warning: if you re-lap the valves in then you will wear away any build up of lead that 'may' have occurred anyway.

I'd say yes, but am very surprised you have 14" wheels?
Usually either 13 or 15.
Not doubting you, just an odd size.
