Re: Anyone agree with the Rocket?

As before if the big money wasn't there in sport, I wonder how many would still pursue it just for the love of it :? I think the only problem with that is that then you'd basically only be able to play Sunday League Football because you have to work to survive. If David Beckham loves football but h...

To be fair to Burton, all orders over £150 are shipped free of charge.

Andrew.
I should hope so for that much!

Hopefully I'll be able to buy a set of spark plugs for that much but I'm not holding my breath :lol:

Re: Speedo Cable

Not to mention that Burton parts must be coated or made from gold as it's the only way I can see they justify what I feel are high prices! £24+postage for an oil spray bar is - in my eyes - daylight robbery

IIRC one is actually green (tacho) the othere is green with a black stripe to the coil if that helps?.
Thank you! Will have a look at the Laser when it's back from the engine rebuild and see if I can fix it

There's usually one green wire involved. How come there's two?
My understanding was there was one green wire that went to the dizzy, the other is for the rev counter so this is the connecter on the coil for the 6pod dash

Coil Connector

Afternoon all! I'm sure I asked about this before but I had no luck at the time - after one of these connectors that go to the coil with the two wires coming off. I rather butchered my wiring when adding in my electronic ignition and ditched the points on the Laser and as such my rev counter hasn't ...

Re: Interesting.....

For a standard 2.8, no. But you've forgotten Brooklands tax! Buy it at £16.5k, fix the few areas and sell it on saying it's concourse and has original paint for twice the price :lol: Today I'm identifying as a carrot :wave: As a turnip, I feel this comment is a personal attack on me and will be repo...

Re: Changed My Original Condenser!

I bet the new one won't last as long as the old one did. I thought that as well, will have to pack a spare for when this one inevitably goes wrong! Hi Danny, Does the condenser mount inside the distributor or on the outside? If it mounts on the inside I have loads of original Bosch items, I could s...

Re: Changed My Original Condenser!

I'll look into that a bit more once I've sorted a few more of the higher priority jobs - would be pretty sweet to keep it if I can.

I need to change the brushes on the old starter motor as well to try and save that!

Cheers

Changed My Original Condenser!

Car was running a little rough so changed the points and they were really badly worn, still wasn't great, changed the condenser and it now runs much better, tried putting it back on so I could try and keep it but it wouldn't start at all once I refitted it. Just a shame I had to change the condenser...

Re: does anyone recognise this capri

Still a cheap capri if you just want a V6 blast from the past though and aren't othered about it being concourse/original etc. If I knew nothing about a capri and just wanted a V6 one then it doesn't seem like such a bad option - especially considering most good examples start at £10-12k these days ...

Could be the distributor ......try removing that and see if it still makes the noise.
I'm waiting for the result of this one :xd:
I think removing the battery would yield a better result :lol:
