Re: Stainless Steel exhaust manifold for Pintos

I was watching that thread with interest, though ceramic coating doesn't come with a lifetime warranty/guarantee (most places are offering between 1-2years) like I'd expect a S/S exhaust to have and the cost probably isn't too dis-similar. A quick google reckons that it is between £150-300 just for ...

Re: Stainless Steel exhaust manifold for Pintos

I'm looking into it because my original cast manifold rusted away, so I got a sportex, which rusted from the inside after 4/5 years so want a longer term solution really :)

Stainless Steel exhaust manifold for Pintos

Hi guys, I was trying to source a stainless steel manifold the other day and could only find one so far, and that came in at £700!! Powerflow and other such places make from the manifold back, so I called around a few places to ask if they could make a manifold to fit a pinto capri engine, and most ...

Re: Seat won't tilt

Probably the cables have gone Danny. If you can't get new ones, many people seem to bodge the break together with a screw type wiring block connecter. https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/products/7822876/?grossPrice=Y&cm_mmc=UK-PLA-DS3A-_-google-_-PLA_UK_EN_Connectors-_-Terminal_Blocks_And_Din_Rail_...

Seat won't tilt

Hi guys, My GL has suddenly decided that it no longer wants to let the front seats tilt forward... Would this be just because the cable is broken or could there be other issues? It pulls up and still feels like it has the same resistance on the tilt handle, but if I go to pull the seat forward it ju...

Re: NOS Rear Bumper on ebay !!

Too be honest I get fed up of Fords and prices. Had my car 8 years over now, spent a fortune and still nowhere near finished. All a waste of time and money. Even a top end capri realistically to my mind is worth 10k tops, I know they go for more but it's people with too much money. I feel the exact...

Re: capri 2.8 / 3.0 strengthening pannels

They're available brand new from CCI Sorry Danny, but CCI don't sell those particular strengthening plates. I know that Steadspeed fabricate panels, perhaps it might be worth contacting them. https://en-gb.facebook.com/Steadspeed/ Andrew. Yes I know, I got myself confused with the other strengtheni...

Re: Nice eBay 2.8i

Wait for the winter months when some people lose interest in owning a classic car. Hopefully we may start to see cheaper spares prices as the value of the cars reduce and people don't take on unrealistic projects. Fingers crossed! Never a bad thing to see prices come down unless you buy for investm...

Cars that seem reasonably priced, are not selling that quickly :?

Definitely not worth the risk on old tyres - original and cool they may be, but safe almost certainly not haha

They reckon you should change tyres every 7-10 years even if you don't use all the tread
