Re: Minder Capri caught fire

Or, as happened to me twice, on different Capris, with the 32/36 carb, the metal fuel inlet pipe can come out of the carb. It then fires the fuel in a perfect arc over to the exhaust manifold. Not saying it's happened in this case, but as it has reminded me of the fault, now would be a good time to...

Re: Car smells rich on idle.

Ha , :) that's what made me think of it , I too have a 390 holley and it too has an idle circuit on the secondaries, I think from memory that the secondary throttle plate opening is set with a 10 thou feeler gauge down the bore between the plate and throttle bore wall .

Re: Car smells rich on idle.

Here's a thought . The secondary barrel has an idle circuit ( just to keep fuel moving as sometimes the secondary doesn't get used for a while ) and there is a throttle stop screw accessed from under the carb base ( carb off job to adjust ) if this is out of adjustment it will cause idle issues IMG_...

Re: Spot the difference...

Gotta admit it does stick out a bit in your car with it being so well presented. Im not a great stickler for keeping things standard for the sake of it but I bet if you took B112 to a posh car show ( like Pebble Beach ) there would be a point off ( probly the only point off on your car ) for not hav...

Re: Spot the difference...

Logically they must be standard otherwise none would have them. They would be the 1st thing some fussy perfectionist would get tickover to remove for him :xd: :tongue: :lol: Seriously tho they must of all had them at new , how else would you lower the engine into the engine bay during initial assemb...

Re: SGS Engineering

I guess that's the down side of internet buying , sometimes the human touch ( not rolf harris or Jimmy saville type) makes the sale more informative and you get a better idea who your dealing with.

How handy are you ?

I made this press out of a 20 ton bottle jack , 2 tractor 3 point linkage pins and the steel channel . Bottle jack needs a couple of simple mods to work upside down . the whole lot cost less than a cheap 5 ton press.
