Re: Handbrake cable

It will happen on some of the reproduction cables. I had it happen on one a couple of years age. What I did was adjust the cable to how I wanted it then put a very small jubilee clip up against the adjuster to lock it in place.

Re: 2.8 clutch

Was this a problem with the original clutch or has it appeared since the replacement was fitted?

Re: 2.8 clutch

Even with those two bolts not fitted the pedal box is still held with two behind the servo and two more on the interior bulkhead so I would be surprised if the pedal box has moved.

Re: 2.8 clutch

LUK is a good brand of clutch. Is there a possibility that the friction plate has been fitted the wrong way round, it is usually marked up flywheel side so you don't fit it incorrectly but not always.

Re: 2.8 clutch

What brand of clutch did you fit? There is only one adjustment on the cable, at the point where it goes through the bellhousing. There is a nylon bush that fits in the bellhousing, the cable goes through it, is the bush in your bellhousing?

Re: Mk1 Capri Handbrake gaiter

On the mk2/3 the gaiter has a press stud that unclips so you can open up the gaiter and slide it over the handbrake grip, does the MK1 not have it? It is usually on the underside of the gaiter so isn't clearly seen.

Re: Bushes

I have the full range of superflex bushes. Some 2.0 had 22mm but others were 24mm. Original rear ARB were 12mm but could possibly have been upgraded to a 14mm one from a 2,8i.
All I would need is the diameters of the bars I and I could supply the correct bushes.

Re: Leaking fuel line HELP!

I think you'll find the pipes coming off the sender units are different diameters, the feed pipe is 6mm while the return is 8mm so you'll need lengths of both 6 and 8mm to do the job.

Re: Interior 2.8

Interior is correct for that year, blue check is the rarer of the interiors, most had grey check. You won't find any RECARO badges on them as they never had them, you won't find anything stating RECARO on those seats. If you compare the shape of these to the later seats in the 2.8i you will notice t...

Re: Gear lever removal

How easy is it to remove the console to get to this ? Shouldn't be too bad - only a few screws through the middle of the console and it should basically come away... If you have a long console I start from the back and work forward as there is one right at the back, and the ones under the lid of th...

Re: Heater box removal

Didn't realise that the chuckle brothers did stuff like this. Probably haven't disconnected the pipes from inside the engine bay and removed the fascia plate.

Re: Windscreen Drama

The size of screen opening in every Capri bodyshell is the same, it's the screen size and rubber that is critical.

Actually, any screen MK1 , MK2 and MK3 will fit any Capri as long as you have the correct rubber.
