Re: caprisport 260mm brakes

Yo Jon,

Long time ago, but I remember I had to drill the struts, removing the threads, to make the bolts go through. I also had to grind a bit off the strut somewhere too. Give Andy Craig a shout, he was my mentor for the brake conversion, had the brackets cut and supplied the bolts.

Re: New RWD Ford in 2015....

Im surprised they didnt try to sell the Mustang in the UK earlier. I expect it will sell very well, if nothing else the name alone will sell it.

Re: carb problem

It does a bit like its got some crap in it. Check the internal filter. Under the big (19 or 17mm) brass nut under the inlet and outlet pipes. Maybe that needs cleaned out. Also as above I'd check the points gap too and make sure they are in good condition.

You can get a fibreglass one from Smith and Deakin, much cheaper and won't rust. :)

Re: Very off topic. My new wheels. All 3 of them.

Love it... :xd: :xd: :xd: always wanted a C5. Keep it nice I'm sure they will be worth a lot in the future. Might be worth adding a wee flag on a long antenna to help lorry drivers see you when on the road.

Have you seen Micro Men? Well worth a watch if not:
