Re: Wheel Balancing

Also consider any wear in the steering rack. I bought a rack from Raldes and it would shake like a spin dryer. The rack was shiny black but the gubbins hadn't been serviced. I de-shimmed it enough to tighten and it was all good.

Re: Silly little front valance woes

Perhaps an odd one kicking around in my garage loft but not in your colour.

Major Tom has my number if you want me to have a check for one. I don't get on here very often.

Re: A few questions for the floor.

If you already run a Capri then first fit an Axle location kit. Either A-Frame or X-Frame, both work but it's the fronts of the leaves that need stiffening because they are fitted with heavy duty bushes at the front which can take the strain and the front halves are the main axle locators. The rear ...

Re: Belated Unseasonal Motor Meet (Eastern Region)

A marvellous weekend as usual and many thanks to Major Tom for organising it. Dave, can you please pass on thanks to Deb & Hugh for ferrying the gazebo up there for us.
I'm now looking forward to visiting a Capri Up North Thing as soon as we find a nice slot we can all fit in.

Re: One for Peter

Car sheeted down since the pups arrived end of July. Not much spare time at the moment with my new job in 'The Oil Business' alongside the fish job. I'm having to ration time on the web although I do have a shufty now & then. But more time soon when I retire from fish in a few months :-) The wai...

Welcome to the LaserPage. A very nice car you have, the previous owner looked after it well.
I'm sure you will have plenty fun driving your 2.0S

Re: What have I missed?

I might be logged-in a bit more often rather than just lurking seeing as I'm now semi-retired as well as being part-time.
Anyway HOW'S NAT DOING and HAS HE STILL GOT THE CAR?????

Re: What are these holes for? What size bolt?

Those holes are for mounting a SUPERCHARGER BRACKET :D
I put my coil-pack on the inner wing just next to the washer bottle & run the HT's along under the strut brace, less heat & vibration & keeps the engine tidier.

That's a cute car no doubt.

Re: Clutch cable

It could just be a camera lens effect but the clutch arm doesn't look to be sitting flush with the release bearing in the top photo - going along the lines of Peter's post. There are also at least three different Capri release bearings (front-to-back dimension,) all of which will fit in there but gi...
