Re: Haynes Breakfast Meets 2019

I went with my son in his ST in February, convoyed there with 3 Focus RS's a later ST and a little Fiat Abarth. Scary drive on icy roads getting there :drive: glad I wasn't in the Capri. But what a great meet, loads to look at and a nice resturant for breakfast. MK1 Keiran got us leaving at 10.56 on...

I've bought my ticket Kris..... Hope t...

Re: Guess what Fordoholic Nick has just collected ???

Hi guys, yep I thought the 'if it aint broke leave it alone" would pop up :lol: . Guys I been doing a lot of work underneath and the tank does need a refurb but when Martin announced he was getting good quality new tanks I thought I might as well replace with a nice new one. I did not put this...

Re: Guess what Fordoholic Nick has just collected ???

All can I ask a big question .... now we are all in the same boat with the age of our petrol tanks and with Young nick being the first I think to get a new petrol tank should any of us be thinking of renewing ours ? I almost sure John did have his refurbished ( I might have that wrong ) So what are...

Re: New Ford on my driveway

Interesting results! It would be interesting to know what map it’s running to produce such a small power increase but all that extra torque, especially as the guys were happy with how it was running. You’d think there was something amiss somewhere but clearly not. :agree: don't know of any 240bhp r...

Re: A Challenge for you

The 4 speeders had a very tall first gear. Catch it right and ignore the red line and you were hitting 60 mph in first gear without the need to change gear. Something I did 30 years ago and not a style of driving I would recommend now in a Capri!

Re: The Capri failed the MOT today

I pulled the master cylinder apart at work today and it looks like it has some pitting in the bore when viewed under a powerful microscope. I've greased the old seals up with some red grease and thinking of refitting it but blanking off the rear port with a bleed nipple to confirm this is the issue....

Re: A Challenge for you

Was the Capri 280 left off this list for a good reason? I would also like to add that the 4 speed 2.8i was definately quicker to 60mph than the later versions........... Just saying :D
