Re: Brake caliper.

No one has yet pointed out that once one piston has popped out you will need to refit it and clamp it in place to get the other one out.

Re: Capri Horn 2.8i

Unbolt the horn, place the base of it's mounting bracket on the negative terminal of the battery. Take a piece of wire and connect it to the positive terminal of the battery then touch the other end to the spade connector on the horn. You'll soon know if it works as the back of your head will be sor...

Re: Timing Question - too much advance?

Another thing you can try is go out to it on a dark night, pop the bonnet and rev it up.
Any dodgy connections or leads will spark up and you'll see it.

I appreciate your sentiment. Thank you.
But no military person would kneel for this!

I don't know if anyone will ever truly comprehend the sacrifices she made to serve her country............to serve all of us.................for so long. Goodbye ma'am, and thank you....

Re: Check those pipes…

Couple of points:
Don't forget that the Ethanol-free Esso fuel is still marked as E5 for some obscure reason, so don't take the E5 bit as gospel.
Also, you'd better all pray it's not the ethanol doing that or your carburettors or metering units will soon turn into sieves!
