You sir, are a legend.

Thanks very much!
I've checked and I do have a very good used cable which will fit.

Re: Speedo Cable

What I am struggling with now is shipping body panels, small stuff isn't an issue but wings, bonnets etc, there's no chance. Have you tried this company Martin - https://www.wheelcarrier.co.uk/acatalog/store.html Cheers for the link. I'll get in touch but I suspect they will volumise large panels w...

Re: Speedo Cable

The ones listed on E Bay, Burton Power etc are all wrong. They are for the 3 litre /4 speed 2.8i. I'm pretty sure I have a used original cable at the workshop.
I am back in on Monday so I can confirm then.

Re: Prices are dropping of late I've noticed.

What really baffles me is who is shelling out that kind of money on cars like this, Wrong interior completely, obviously been given a quick blow over and tart up. Exhaust system looks a total lash up, Engine bay looks total shite and that's after only having glanced for a few seconds. You have to ad...

Re: Inner Wing Repair Panel

I have those panels on the shelf. They're slightly oversize so will require trimming to fit .

Re: Crankshaft rear bush

Obvious way to me if you can't pull the bush out is to grind it away from the inside out using a rotary burr. As well as thinning out the wall of the bush it will generate heat at the same time.

Re: Car Shows Return

Try being a trader at shows! with the exception of John at CCI who has always been very fair with trade pitch prices without exception all of the others, Ford Fair, Fast For, NEC etc all charge astronomical pitch fees which is why I no longer trade there.

Re: Motorbikes anyone ?

I have a couple in the back of my workshop, plan was to tinker with them while the Capri stuff is quiet - Not a bloody chance. Almost finished my 1979 Honda CB75O FA but not got near it in the past four years. My 1984 Kawasaki GPZ1000RX is presently covered in a thick coat of dust and cobwebs, I sup...

Re: Minder Capri caught fire

That was a lucky escape but is a straightforward rebuild. I did a MK3 2.0 Sport some years ago that had more damage than that and it wasn't a massive job.

Re: Grrr - still cuts out ....any ideas?

You can lose all of the miles of crappy vacuum pipework that came with the VV carb now you have the Weber. Simply run a single vacuum hose from the distributer to the carb.
Also check the distributer cap and rotor arm, if in doubt replace them.

Andrew. It's dead simple to refit the clip, you don't need to see where it goes, in fact it's easier to do it by feel ( as with a lot of things)

Re: Stop the destruction of our passion

If anyone is stupid enough to believe that either government or car dealers are "giving" you way above what your trade in is actually worth then I am frankly gobsmacked.
What these gullible idiots fail to see is that the price has already been hiked on the car that they're being mugged for.

Re: Accelerator Pedal Play

A dab of superglue or a cable tie are usually the methods used.
