Re: Capri hot start problem

:welcome:

I have replaced the VV with a Weber carb and manual choke on my Sierra 1.6 Pinto.

That could be an option as it's great on fuel too :cool:

:goodluck: and also sorry for your loss!

Re: Who Remembers?

Great stuff Andy, would never be allowed now. Channel 7 on freeview are showing the original Kenny Everett TV show, and in each one there is a Hot Gossip routine. He calls it the naughty bit, probably was back then, quite lame now but strangely it wouldn't be allowed. Go figure! 51 years ago it doe...

Re: Capri Truck Artwork

Very talented to paint like that! I believe human portraits are particularly difficult.

I can't draw at all but the Mrs is very good, especially painting and drawing pets/animals portraits.

Sad news indeed Paul!

Re: Just got done speeding...

If only our 'Police' took muggings, burglaries, stabbings as seriously as speeding then I feel sure that this shit hole of a country would be a much nicer place to live in. I think I'll definitely have a 'Falling Down moment' if this crap continues :cigar: :agree: As do 99.9% of others on these mat...

Re: 1980 Ford Capri L 1.6

I'd agree that binning the vv is the best thing you can do for that engine - a Weber 32/36 is an improvement but will likely coat you more in fuel (it's hard not to put your foot down more!) Compared to a 34ICH which isnt a bad little carb if you aren't worried about power Replaced the VV on the Si...

Re: B54ODX- my mk3 laser

Sadly all you will probably get from the Woke Police is a crime number :roll:

Too busy on the M25 pandering to a handful of nutters or driving around in their pride painted cars investigating online hate crime :doh:

Re: Just got done speeding...

I've seen them locally parked in a 30mph limit.

That's part of the reason the Mustang went, over 400hp and looking out for speed cameras takes the enjoyment out of it.

Thanks guys! :)

And thanks for explaining mirror mystery. ;) I don't have any Sierra brochure and via google I found only photos with "normal" Sierra mirrors.

I bought a 1983 Ford brochure when I had the Capri, luckily it has other era cars in it inc the Sierra :cool:

Re: I was wondering....

Ive seen this footage via a link from facebook. Most people who watched it via facebook were in support of the sierra driver. Needless to say the social media craze supports this sort of behaviour. Personally i think its tragic. The ones that condone that sort of driving, sums up the mentality of m...

Nice pics :cool:

Re Sierra mirror, not seen them before but after a google search and a look in my brochure it seems they were on base model cars without electric mirrors.
