Re: front suspension tapping/knocking sound

My car did the same when the locking nut that holds the damper in wound itself loose, it was letting the whole assembly rock in and out.

Re: Engine Choices

I think you can pick up a ca cheap still but thats cause when drifters up the power on the cheap they usually develop a bottom end knock.

Re: Engine Choices

SR20's are bloody lovely engines, I bought a standard 200sx in january and I couldnt belive how much it pulls unmodified. My mates 14 is also the fastest car I've ever been in. a capri spitting flames and turbo chattering would be lovely indeed.

Re: Over the winter touch up

Hi, As an ex-Chevette owner I'd be interested to see how work progresses on that as well as the Capri. Only 250 of all variants licensed now. Andrew. Yeah I've literally never seen a chevette on the road, It's gonna progress very slowly I suspect though with the work I'm doing on the capri and the ...

Re: Over the winter touch up

Hi guys, the unit is brilliant but it's not as dry as you'd hope. There is room for one more car but my mates s14 is going in that space haha.

Re: Good looking 15" wheels

brooklands wheels are horrid IMO. Minilites always look nice. I'm after some compomotive cx type alloys for my capri eventually but I have a feeling I'll have to fork out and make some split rims to get what I want.

Re: front 2.0 insert replacement tools

A big c spanner is probably the right tool but Mine were siezed and I had replacements anyway so I used some large stilsons.

Re: coloured fan belts

I've only seen a coloured belt on a supra that had a clear timing cover. It was bright pink I think and it worked quite well with that car. It was overshadowed by a turbo bigger than the engine though.
