Re: Brake shoes

Only the 1.6 had the different sizes, 2.0 litre ones were all 9 inch. Thanks. Yeah honestly judging from all the pictures it looks like someone's put the 2.8i/3.0 ones on mine. You can see a picture on the OP of one of my old threads here: http://www.fordcapriforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=50939 D...

Re: Brake shoes

So mk3's had either an 8" or 9" drum? Tickover has them for sale in both sizes, and the little 8" ones look like the ones I've been sent that don't fit.
I'm so confused about this as it's the first time I've heard of it.

Re: Brake shoes

I can't afford to take it anywhere right now as money is tight, my dad was the one who gave me the money for the shoes in the first place so I can't really take it to a garage. I have no clue if it's been converted to 2.8 ones, though I wouldn't have thought it was as everything on my car was facto...

Potentially.... I wasn't aware that they were different but if that's the case then that's likely what's happened. The ad did specify that they were for a 2.0 though so not sure why they'd send the ones for a 1.6. eBay sellers for you I guess lol.

Brake shoes

Just tried fitting some new rear shoes I bought off eBay that were advertised as being the correct ones for my car, however they're completely different from my old ones. They are narrower, and don't even match the circumference of the older ones or the drums themselves. They look like they'd fit on...

Re: So...im assuming this is a bearing issue?

Cool thanks, I'll get some new bearings ordered. Hey, if it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all :roll:

And people wonder why I have issues :xd: :xd:

Re: So.... throttle cables

Thanks guys. Ive gone ahead and ordered one from an ebay seller, looks slightly different from the one that snapped so hopefully its slightly better, these things seem to be pot luck. Didnt think to ask Martin for some reason, sorry. It snapped at the opposite end this time, at the assembly point un...

It's funny, but it seems everything that goes wrong on this car is due to an aftermarket part failing. Says alot doesn't it?

So.... throttle cables

As I sit here stranded since the throttle cable I bought from Burton's less than a few months ago to replace an old cable which also snapped and left me stranded too, I'm wondering if anyone knows a better place to get throttle cables from as it seems clear that the ones from Burton are complete shi...

Re: Rear light wiring problem

I fixed my issue today and it was a combination of a bad earth, and the zinc plated housings rusting away. As the screw that holds everything in go in they are supposed to make contact via some washers to the housings. There's two rings on each side and these are corroding away, so I'd imagine this ...

Re: Best super glue on the market?

I used to use something called plastic fusion when I built models. Once fully cured it was like concrete, but still had enough flex to prevent cracking under stress. Took ages to fully cure though, and dried a whitish beige colour and required sanding and painting afterwards, but it was the best stu...

I went out in mine yesterday which was arguably the worst day so far and everything was fine. My old 2.0s performed perfectly.
