To save people hunting. It's Linconshire which is not too bad for me (about 200 miles) but since my Capri hasn't run in over 3 years (long story) I'm not sure I'll make it. Would love to go tho, just have to see if I can get her ready in time.

Re: Headlight / Headlamp relay quesions

Thanks Martin, I figured that would be the case.

Pls can you on me with a price for one of the working items. Not urgent as I still need to get the engine running and finish some other wiring bits.

Headlight / Headlamp relay quesions

Hi all, Got a few questions about this relay / fuse box thing... 1. I think mine is knackered. So I'm getting my Capri back together (very slowly) and put the headlights back in yesterday. Connected the battery etc. and went to test everything out and found the dip beam is only working on one side. ...

Re: Found a scary problem with my steering rack !!

Do you mean where the ball joint attaches to the steering arm on the strut? As far as I know, the original ball joint used a castellated nut, like the anti-roll bar, which is prevented from undoing using a split pin. On the replacement ones that I got they used nylock nuts instead. Both require you ...

Re: Capri V10

Looks great, was wondering if you'd made any progress on this.

Would love to see some close ups of the carbon body. Have you decided how much you're going to paint vs leave as exposed carbon?

Re: Exhaust rubbing tyre

If you can post some pictures that would help. I would def. recommend against using cable ties as they won't withstand the heat of the exhaust. Metal cable ties are available but it still feels like more of a get-you-home fix than a permanent solution. There are loads of universal exhaust bushes ava...

Re: Stoopid question...

Still, I do usually torque everything by the book, but in that situation you just can't get the wrench in place. Likewise, it's pretty much all I use the Haynes manual for these days. I figure if it's specified, it take no extra time to put the socket on the torque wrench and tighten it up with tha...

Stoopid question...

So I'm putting the suspension all back together, following the guide from Beakster and the technical page on here. I have everything back together loosely ready to put the weight back onto the wheels before final tightening. So, how am I supposed to torque the TCA to strut ball joint nut to 33 lb/ft...

Re: caprisport 260mm brakes

Beakster is right, to fit the brackets you have to drill the original threaded holes out to remove the threads and allow the bracket to be fitted on the rear. From memory you also need to grind / file the two tabs with the threaded holes so the bracket fits flat, if that makes sense. I have the 260 ...

Re: Spiltting the Steering Column

I have a CCI one, whilst functional I wasn't massively impressed with the quality of production if I'm honest. The paint job, if you can even call it that is wafer thin and chips off if you look at it. Also, for the price they charge I wasn't expecting to have to clean burrs out of the splines from ...

I'll see what I can do to convince the MK2 owner, his work means he can go for weeks without being able to have a day off so it'll depend if he can arrange things around it but I'll start bugging him about it now :) Hi, If he can't make it, with a bit of luck he might let you borrow the car to driv...

I'll certainly be making the effort to make it along to more of these if I can. 8th May is looking good for me, which hopefully will make up for not being able to come to Beaulieu the week before. I might even be able to convince my mate to bring his MKII RS2000 XPack if I'm lucky. Hi, Sorry to hea...
