Looking great, Peter.
Don't you usually take the Laser?

I was going to say only if I want to break down in the tunnel but I didn't like to tempt fate! I've taken the laser many times including last year when the 2.8 was misbehaving but currently it's undergoing a little tlc

Re: Aviation History

I know a lot of people here are also into planes. I just wonder how many of you, like me, were completely unaware of the crucial role air power had played in the American War of Independence ? https://www.aol.co.uk/news/2019/07/05/trump-dive-bombed-in-tweets-after-claiming-army-seized-revolutio/?nc...

Re: 1979 Capri 2.0 "Ghia"

Cheers guys! Is there anyway to test the fuel pump? i'm wondering if this is going bad and not feeding petrol up to the carb? i guess adding this will test that but it does like to cut out randomly at times. If you disconnect the fuel pipe from the carb and pop the end in to a jar and then crank th...

En route to CRaP

So headed off to our annual knees up on Friday and stopped at IWM Duxford on the way and then headed off to the old airfield at Kings Cliffe.

Nick/Jason - I'm impressed

Thanks guys. Not only did you organise that Spitfire flypast at Deal a few weeks ago I was taken aback today when it became clear you'd done it again for CRaP weekend. What can I say!

Re: 1979 Capri 2.0 "Ghia"

As said the inlet is below the tag and this is the pipe that should have the filter in. The thing that it connects to below the distributor will be the fuel pump.

The pipe you mention is probably a return to the fuel tank.

Re: Fuel Pipes & Braided Brake Hoses?

It probably is a good idea to change the fuel pipe. I believe you will need to look for R9 rated pipe, it tolerates new increased ethanol levels in fuel.

New head gasket & stem seals fitted, pulled the stat out too. Small split in the boost pipe though so needs some tlc.

Spotted A9

Yesterday a little after 3.30 heading north on the A9 around the river Spey bridge, aMKI face-lift in blue probably with a vinyl roof. Anyone here?
