Maybe it includes all three cars you can see in the pic and the outbuilding.

Re: Has anyone else noticed that Euro Car Parts...

I've found that using the CarParts4Less site is much better, usually far cheaper on most everything, yet it appears to be pretty much the same suppliers.

Re: VV Carb to 34 ICH conversion kit

If you wish to do what is easiest and keep your car going with the least amount of messing as you have said then yes go for the 34 ICH, nothing wrong with having that mindset at all, perhaps keep the 32/36 in mind for a future job. As you rightly imply, one job typically leads to a much bigger one, ...

Re: Selling my Capri

I've now added to the auction £200 deposit not required. Looking at it and I agree. Good decision that I think. As long as your description/info is accurate, then the winning bidder (assuming it isn't a time wasting idiot), should be happy and collect the car and pay in full without issue. Don't fo...

Re: Selling my Capri

I don't know about anyone else who would buy a car (especially a capri) without looking at if first though? You do now :) But of course when collecting a car you have won on ebay, if the info wasn't accurate than you would not pay. If the listing was correct, then you should pay the amount you have...

Re: Selling my Capri

Looks like an honest listing and a fair price to start it off with. The send-me-£200-before-you-come-to-collect-the-car bit might put some off though. I certainly wouldn't do that unless I have been to visit the car beforehand.

2l bottles of 10/40 GTX for 6 quid on special in Tescos atm.
And that's fantastic, think I shall go for some, thanks! £12 for 4L is probably the lowest I have seen it.

Re: oil

Paul, look at this - got to be the lowest I`ve ever seen + free delivery? Might get a couple for Fiat at that price. Even 10w40`s £19 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Castrol-GTX-Engine-Oil-15W-40/dp/B004AF7TQO/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=castrol+gtx&qid=1562885166&s=gateway&sr=8-1 That does look good, thanks Stev...

What Car Is This

Can anyone determine for sure what car is in this video, make/model/year?

Re: oil

Paul, I think it was just a couple of quid cheaper than the 10w40: it`s for the Fiat anyway so pretty much anything goes ;-) For reference, this place seems good value, they sell the 10/40 at the same price too - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-Litres-4L-Castrol-GTX-15W40-Part-Semi-Synthetic-Car-Engin...

Just what were they thinking! Other than a little controversy to create more interest, a higher profile. Marketing people are more devious than you think.

Re: 3.0 Ghia - Problems

Re: 3.0 Ghia - Problems

I can't spot anywhere where it states what carb this is, but anyway - There should be a point where you screw the mixture screw in, where the car is on the verge of cutting out, and would cut out if you kept screwing it in, because of course you are basically cutting the fuel supply off. At that poi...

Re: 1979 Capri 2.0 "Ghia"

Obviously you can also open the throttle by hand whilst looking down the carb. You should see that squirt of fuel, assuming the carb isn't dry of course.
