Re: Whining sort of noise....?

It's a bit scary but the half shafts are held in by only 4 small bolts. Sometimes, with bolts removed, they will come out with a good tug but, as Wayne suggests, they can be a bit stubborn and you will need a slide hammer. As an alternative I have put an old brake drum on the shaft mounted back to f...

Re: Whining sort of noise....?

If it is from one side I would say wheel bearing. You could take the half shaft out (wheel bearing is attached to it) and swap it with the other Capri and see if it goes away.

Re: Electric fuel pump

The car of mine that has this issue would quite happily drain and flatten battery after battery if I let it That is a definite problem your car has, obviously. It should only take a few seconds of cranking for the fuel to be delivered and the car to spring into action. After you have done a ton of ...

Re: Belated Unseasonal Motor Meet (Eastern Region)

Thanks Tom, that was a real BUMMER 😄 Fab weekend, great to catch up with the gang again. https://i.postimg.cc/qMTRjGTf/DSC-0873-2.jpg Good run home and it was nice to see Tom in my mirrors for the first 20 minutes.

Re: Electric fuel pump

Has anyone fitted such a thing, and if so, where about and what power feed did you use? It seems to suggest out of the engine bay to prevent fuel vapour lock. Is the carb over run feed man enough for the job? For some reason, even though it never was an issue in the past, the fuel readily and fairl...

Re: Brake caliper.

Personally I would take it off, pop the piston out and give everything a good clean , it probably has years of crud in it. Really it depends if you are confident in fiddling around with it.
If you go the new route I would do both sides.

Re: Big hesitation.

I think the rich fuel smell is the giveaway here. Too much fuel getting into the carb so when you accelerate and it adds even more then its moving the mixture outside of a combustible range. However, if the above answers don't cure it then this is also a classic symptom of a failing accelerator pum...

Re: Timing Question - too much advance?

Is the car new to you or have you had a while and this is a new fault?
Just wondering what you know of the carb and what the emissions are like, is it running way rich perhaps? Is it on a standard cam?

No offence intended, but as John Lydon wrote recently " I've got no animosity against anyone of the Royal family. Never did. It's the institution of it that bothers me and the assumption that I'm to pay for it" I have to smile at Mr Lydon, I suspect that he didn't do too badly from his as...

Spotted on the M6

Saw this rather nice 3.0S on the M6 this afternoon and as we were in a 50 stretch the other half was able to get a quick snap. Also saw a really nice RS2000 on a flat bed. Looked like the sort of car that is ferried between shows. Sorry, no pics of that one. https://i.postimg.cc/3RHTTqBK/DSC-0858-2....
