Re: Capri Party & Rally Weekend 2017 (30 June, 1/2 July)

Hi i was wondering how people felt if i advertised this great weekend on Facebook e.g on a great capri group on there called capri world? As it would be great to get some more capri enthusiasts onto this forum and get them to come to this great weekend even if it was just for a day. :D

Re: My new project..... Warning non Ford content!

That's lovely I do have a soft spot for mk2 golfs that looks like a tidy GTI. My mate from college who comes to the car shows with me has a white J reg 1991 VW golf mk2 1.8 driver which is tidy for its age and only cost him £900. He let me drive it after a car show once and it was great wouldn't min...

So I tested the primary circuit first and got a reading of 2.6 on 200 ohms which I subtracted 1.6 ohms from to get 1.0 ohm to get a more acc...

Re: Which coil should I buy?

Sorry guys I forgot to mention my capri has a electronic ignition aid called luminition bolted near to the coil which has done away with the points and condenser. Also I've never had a problem with the electronic ignition system since owning the car for 6 years. I'll get some readings on my multi me...
