Re: Capri 2.8i metering head again

what's this ive seen about sesling the metsl diaphragm with shellac, that's nail polish Hi Kelvin, If I remember correctly, Peter has attempted a refurb of a metering head. Hopefully he'll be able to shed some light on sealing the metal gasket. I've not tried it myself so I can't comment much furth...

Re: Capri 2.8i metering head again

I take it you refurbished the unit yourself? From what I understand, it can be a bit of a fiddly task. If you're sure it's leaking fuel from the join of the two parts, I would have thought the only thing to do is to take it apart and start again. Are you definitely certain fuel isn't leaking from on...

I've put my clock under the driver's seat. That way, whenever need to drive somewhere, I'll always be on time.

Re: Capri Club Magazine Late?

The cost of CCI membership has been static for quite a few years now. I wouldn't be very surprised if, due to spiralling costs, that was to rise very soon.
The gold membership is inflation proof.
Perhaps Rishi Sunak knows a thing or two about economics? :)

Re: Capri Clock

But I was little bit disappointed with this book then. You buy this type of books to know how everything should be and then you find something, what isn't true for sure (or it is disputed)... So there could be wrong information in this book, so you can't rely on it for 100% no more. I wasn't happy ...

Interesting to note that the "hands" have been downgraded to "fingers" somewhere in the thread! :lol:

Re: Capri Clock

In James Taylor's "Factory-Original Ford Capri MKII & III" book it states this about the clock:

"The quartz clock embedded in the centre console always had yellow hands, even though the main dials had red hands".

Well spotted, Tom!

The wheels in the last photo of the 3.0S look quite badly photoshopped.

Re: Sill hem color

Looking again at the black paint on the sill of that white car, it looks to me like a stonechip paint has been been sprayed onto the sill.
Because of the overspray that Andy mentioned and the non-even coverage, I would be almost certain that it has not been factory applied.

Re: Sill hem color

Is it Capri brochure or Ford Cars? And what color is that 2.8i? Maybe I have this brochure too. Hi Tom, It's a Capri brochure, this is the front cover. https://i.postimg.cc/sfHP1fJg/IMG-3052.jpg Here is the 2.8 photo that shows the sill: https://i.postimg.cc/qMdKNt30/IMG-3053.jpg A close up of that...

Re: Sill hem color

I've got a brochure from '83 that clearly shows a 2.8 with the sill hem painted in body colour.
My scanner isn't currently working, so I can't scan a photo, however, I'll try to take a photo in natural light tomorrow.

Re: Sill hem color

Well spotted, Tom.

I haven't got a clue, but could it be some black rustproofing like Waxoyl sprayed on the sill?
