Re: laser front and rear seats ,

Ah shucks, and here’s me waiting for a set of laser seats and I never even knew some were on the go. Which is probably a good job as it would have been a bidding war. Still, if anyone knows of a laser drivers seat (all seats if I gotta but mostly just the drivers) or a full matching set in grey that...

Re: Weber 34 ICH

That’s what looks to be happening (the pump thing Bug mentions not the Jet) But the lever seems to be fully out when I’ve looked at it in fault condition. Indeed last time it corrected I turned it off for a few minutes to move the cars around so I could get it on the drive and it was fine. But a sto...

Re: Weber 34 ICH

Fine suggestion I’ll give that a bash, I don’t know when I will next get it out (winter will soon stop play) but that will just tell me something is sticking, sadly, not what. It’s making me not want to drive it much, it becomes a proper little mare to driver when it throws a wobbler! :crying:

Weber 34 ICH

anyone got any experience with these? It’s all set correctly (good idle speed, good emissions) but at random points it won’t idle (just drops to nothing when the clutch goes in) without choke and runs like a bag of spanner’s at low throttle. Having checked the carb during one of its intermittent fai...

so...now the rear brakes are finished IMG_20201115_144204small.jpg mmmm....shiny, its time to have a look at the servo and hydraulics: IMG_20201121_121356small.jpg Awww...look how teeny tiny it is. Explains why you need to give it such a shove. Not like a modern car with massive servo where you brea...

Re: Capri spotted on tv

Well, nearly TV, YouTube on my telly. Goodwood road and race channel have just (well, last week) posted the 78th member meeting historic races, Jake Hill in a 3 litre Capri drifting it round goodwood being chased by a 302 boss mustang in 1 race and a Camero in the other. Absolute nip and tuck, big A...

Re: fuel pump

Brand spanking new tank. And did it with the old one that had turned into a teabag. I think that will be ok. But I’ll try owt once!

Re: fuel pump

Well both of them don’t work so good then :xd: :xd: might be worth trying another new pump I suppose. Wasn’t a cheapo no make neither, ah well, some you win, some you lose.

fuel pump

Does anyone know if the pinto mechanical fuel pump should have non return valves in it? I swapped to a shiny new one during the rebuilding as a matter of course because old shrivelled pump diaphragms aren't a wise idea but it seems to bleed the fuel back to the tank now. I don't recall having issues...

Re: Using Metal Weld On Diff Cover?

Only problem you may encounter with the such products is it’s not very keen sticking to anything remotely oily or dirty. Because the oil is leaking from inside chances are it will still be able to seep out as you glue it up so you might have a ‘mare getting it to seal the leak up so you’d have to ma...

Re: Hello...lost laser making a comeback

Why thank you all, I was quite pleased to have made it this far, I wasn't planning on doing it but what with the "unknown virus of unexplained origin" I had the time and it stopped me going more crackers than I am. Just imagine how much better it would have been if I knew what I was doing!...

Re: Hello...lost laser making a comeback

Now, where was I? Ah yes. The arch......what happens once we weld in the new metal? Zinc primer everything. Obviously needs filler and someone with the talent to make it pretty but..metal is in. Good enough. Looks Capri shaped to me. If I squint. 20200912_165553small.jpg Now to move backwards... It ...

Re: Loads of parts for sale! And a Shell!

Don’t suppose there are any body side mouldings? Or a drivers side laser seat in good shape? I’d very much like those if anyone has such items.

Re: Hello...lost laser making a comeback

Once I'd recovered what tattered shreds of my sanity remained I had to make a call. Fight, or buy bonds. Turn it in as someone else's project (part complete lockdown project, might make the money back I've spent on the parts?) or go down swinging with a hacked up ruin fit for scrap. Well, I had noth...

Re: Not starting.

Sounds obvious and I’m not taking the rip, but if you’ve been working on the dizzy have you pulled any leads and put them on out of order? Or clipped the cap on frack to bunt? It’s easy in the hubbub to lose track and end up getting them out of whack then spending hours looking for the fault. Not th...

Re: Hello...lost laser making a comeback

So the left hand side, passenger floor and snout are all made of metal. Clearly victory is nigh! I've defeated the evil tin worm and its minions of doom. Down the pub for a pint...oh wait, this was mid lock down 2020. Down the garden with a tin of special brew. But I'll just check the other side.......

Well, everything north of the windscreen is positively rock solid after what turned into a couple or 3 lockdown months of hitting steel with a whacky stick and using the old metal glue gun to smoosh it together. It is therefore with much confidence that I can peek underneath and not be remotely trou...
