Re: Mk 3 2.0 - it begins!

Cheers guys! :) The garage was a priority when we were building the house! The difference a clean out and some wall and floor paint before starting the Capri was the best decision!! Thankfully i've not discovered more areas of rust so far from what I saw it when I bought it. Ya I agree on the blasti...

Mk 3 2.0 - it begins!

So bit the bullet and decided it's time to get cracking and get the project underway after sorting out my garage... Parked up in its new home for how long, who knows! Would love to get it finished for next summer! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v83/s_ully/Capri/56951EEB-80F2-4886-8D8D-3E8C0D374B7...

But it's a way brighter in there a...

What I did yesterday...

My garage was a dusty dumping ground in where the Capri would just squeeze in, so I said right before I really begin to tackle into the Capri, the garage needs a bit of sorting out! As my wife said it was like me getting a nursery ready for a kid!! Which is probably the best way of describing it!! B...

Re: Struggling on WOT

Jacked it up and had a look so its out of the speedo cable hole alright, not leaking too much only when jacked up it leaked more, will try a temp fix until I get the box out and top it up... Will be fine as the most driving it does is a 1km round trip to see how she is if I've changed something! So ...

Re: Hello!

Hi Andrew,

Yes seems a great place with great knowledge already!

Yes, if a car is a classic (30 years + and pre 87 I think) then yes they are acceptable! Personally I much prefer them to white plates!

A full strip down is on the cards eventually, will get under her and see exactly what's the cause and decide next steps then, hopefully it'll wait another while as its down the priority list... Will keep it topped up and an eye on it...

Re: Struggling on WOT

So had another look and fuel filter was in bad need of a clean (replacement kit on the way) had a look at the accelerator pump jets and below is before and after! Is it correct for one to be larger than other? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v83/s_ully/Capri/612EEA2D-EFF6-4CD9-A688-2649A1D321CF.jp...

Re: Struggling on WOT

Thanks Peter, yes a service is on the cards, got oil and filter today so will try to pick up Leads and few other bits and give it a thorough look over at the weekend and then I'll see how she's running.

Hopefully tackle the carb the following then once kit arrives.
