Wish you were nearer, I'd soon weld that sump up for you.

Re: Project: Repair of Broken Metal Casting.

That engine looks better than new. Lets hope your repair holds and as as said earlier withstands the expansion and contraction when the engine is hot then cold.

Re: Factory 2.0 pinto cam cover wanted

Danny, if you need a rocker cover I've got one you can have for nothing. It's a later wide gasket one and you will need to get the larger bolts/washers to fit it. I think it's a Sierra one with the baffle under the filler cap hole.

Anyway, it's yours if you want it.

Re: Respray

Hi fellas, its been awhile, sadly my father passed away so I've been a bit behind with the restoration etc. The Capri went back in for more work, so she ended up having a complete respray in the end. 94262382_221979212561827_7547019921536843776_n.jpg My condolances on your father passing away.

Re: Stubacca's Glacier Blue 1984 LS

Stu, that's a lot of work you've undertaken in the last 13 years. Good to see an update on where you're at. If I was you, as the car is as stripped as it is, I'd get it sprayed now if you can. I just think if you jump the gun & build it back up for an mot after all this time you may lose the drive ...

Re: Pinto engine coolant hoses

Hi Dan The only two hoses that you will have to change/get are the hose from the heater matrix up to where the auto-choke would be and then the one from the auto choke down to the inlet manifold. You will have to use a joiner piece between these two hoses which will sit behind the carb. I doubt anyo...

We are getting cheaper fuel here too . Went from $2.20 to $1.80 per litre . :applaud:
I'm surprised that it's $1.80 in NZ. At the current £/NZ$ rate of 2.04 that's about 90p so only a little less than here. When I visited New Zealand 20 years ago it was substantially cheaper than the UK.

Re: Drivers side sunvisor

An idea Mel. If you can't get the exact one you need, could you get a cream colour one and spray it black with some vinyl paint. Nick of Pinto fame is very fond of Halfords vinyl paint and it would probably do the jobby if you could get a satin finish one.

I would guess the bracket comes out over the leads and they feed through a suitable cut out in it.

Probably for when an air conditioner is fitted. Granada models especially that were also fitted with the pinto engine.

Could they be off a marine diesel or a truck/digger/backhoe or a train engine? I've never seen anything like it.

If this one is like that I would consider getting all the rubber hoses in the fuel lines replaced just to be safe.
