Re: Fuel gauge not working

Reading still below 4v so something else must be causing it. Hi Rob, Just to double check, take the wire off the temperature sender and test the voltage there. That should also be 5V. Andrew. Yes this is a good check to make sure the voltage reg behind the dash is working correctly. Another few thi...

Re: Battlesbridge Classic Ford Show 2018

Great pictures John. Always a good variety at this show. Some brilliant Capris there & im also taken with that single colour XR4i, think it looks better than the standard one but that's just me. Cheers for the pics. :cheers:

Re: What a Waste!

I know you shouldn't judge a book by the cover, but looking at the front of the house probably says it all..... :shock: Don't know what you mean. Lick of paint on those drive gates & that house will look a million dollars :D I agree though, what a waste. If you never intended using them again, ...

Re: Fuel gauge not working

Sorry I jinxed you Peter ;) . Ok, a quick update. Changed the regulator & unfortunately, nothing's changed :doh: . At least I can eliminate that. Reading still below 4v so something else must be causing it. May have to find an auto electrician. On a plus point, it failed to start once last weeke...

The one I fitted was from CCI, fitted with no problems but don't recall what size it was & it doesn't say on their website.

Re: Now I have heard it all....

Just had the exact opposite today. Dropped in on a friend, who came out to see who'd parked a motorbike on his drive :D . Side on, with word 'injection' clearly showing, he asks 'is it a 2.0S like you used to have?' & 'why hasn't it got fishnet headrests?' His wife comes out next, relief over he...

Re: A strange situation

It is a strange one this. I have done my entire dash top in hfvp but have had no ill effects like this. Having said that, the car is always garaged, so it's only exposed to the sun when I'm enjoying it & it's rarely driven at night so I haven't experienced any issues there. You might be onto som...

Fantastic pictures gents. Looked a great day out at the ACE. That convoy in from the services must have looked spectacular with all those great looking Capris travelling together. Must have made quite an entrance at the ACE. Thanks for posting up all these pictures, it's great being part of this for...

Re: Fuel gauge not working

I think the feed on this is meant to be 6 volts, governed by the regulator in the dash. Might be worth checking what reading you are getting. Checked this & ive got less than 4 volts power. Does this mean changing the regulator as well to make it work or is there another reason for this? Sorry,...

Re: Fuel gauge not working

Just an update. Fitted the new sender unit today (a CCI unit, only one I could get) . Tested continuity before Fitting & I get a reading on the top 2/3 of its movement. Not having anything to compare it to, I fitted it as I've been running down the tank. No reading showed on gauge after fitting ...
