Re: What a transformation !!

It's certainly a Surrey registration on it and according to the DVLA it was registered one month and one day before mine. It seems to have been continually MOT'd and taxed. I haven't seen it at any of the club meetings but I bet Kris would know it. What jeremy Walton says sort of follows with what I...

Re: What a transformation !!

April or May I think. I wish I knew what the chassis no of the first one was the I could work out how near to the start it was made. As far as I can remember the Laser actually was introduced as a limited edition before being adapted as the mainstream model in about September of 1984. They also did ...

Re: Engine bay stickers and a few bits

I have Ian's personal email address if you need it;- I won't put it on here but will PM it to you if you can't get in touch with him by the usual channels.

I can vouch for his work, it's very good.

Re: The Capri failed the MOT today

I'd go along with the diagnosis of the master cylinder too.

When bleeding the brakes if you jack the front of the car a bit higher than the rear this should allow the bias valve to open the flow to the rear a bit more than in the level or nose down position.

Re: Help!

Would a Mk3 Cortina or MK1 Escort one be the same? Might be a bit easier to find if so.

Re: Weather Strip Replacemet

I didn't take the door card off when I replaced the (outer) weather strips. Just carefully prised off the outer trim then the old weatherstrip pulled out of its clips. New one just pushed back in and cut to length. It was a bit fiddly getting it back in the clips but it all went in OK in the end.

Re: Laser + GL

With the viscous fan coupling Danny remember they are a left hand thread so you have to "twat" them on the right hand side of the flats on the retaining nut. They unscrew clockwise.
