Re: New Member to the group

Sounded like a good mine of info on the car & a snapshot of :ford: at the time. Yes, mine has a sunroof & yes the headliner had sagged and was also ripped when I bought the car. Since replaced with a new one from Martin. Fader still works ok though :D
Cheers for the extra story.

Re: Fuel gauge now working

Assume it's the windings on the sender that are damaged in that area....Just going to keep it above 1/4 tank to be safe. Sorry to hear you have an issue with your sender Andy. When I had mine repaired the first time, my electrician mate soldered a broken winding & I had exactly that result. Rea...

Re: New Member to the group

Brilliant story. The Capri must have left quite an impression on them. Glad you’re now enjoying it yourself. The previous owner of mine owned it for 10 years & wanted to have the option of buying it back if I ever sell. He may have to wait a while :D . I can see how it might have got emotional f...

Re: mk2 1974 Ghia for sale

Car was for sale on here 4 years ago. I liked it then, it’s had a lot of work done since then & I think the newer 4 spokes it now wears suit it better than the originals. Nice car, good luck with sale :goodluck: http://www.fordcapriforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=47273&hilit=I+must+...

The Capri one airs on Monday, watched it this week on TV Play. Won’t spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it, but when the...

Re: Fuel gauge now working

Thanks for the update Rob. It's good that the last repair lasted 3 years, hopefully this repair will beat that. Couldn't the person who repaired it re-wind with new wire to make it last longer before another repair is necessary? I was hoping you might have found us all an alternative to buying a ne...
