Re: Wanted 2.8 Carb Inlet Manifold

They come wrapped in rocking horse poo. Been after one for ages. Try serious banger racers....but they are reluctant to part with them.

Re: Essex V6 carb jetting

Having spent money building a nicely specc'ed engine I would have thought it makes sense to spend some more money on a rolling road session where they can optimise your jetting, cam timing etc etc. Asking for jet sizes on a forum is futile. anyone who can know exactly what jets you need from a descr...

Sounds like you may have an automatic one. Not a problem, should still work fine

Re: Leaking brake fluid

I used to knock the reservoir off the master cylinder frequently until I put a cable tie on. Pull it down reasonably tight and it should stop the leak.

Re: Soooo

You can change gear without a clutch. Driving without one is not possible in traffic or at really busy times, but otherwise relatively easy to do. Upchanges are easy accelerate smoothly and make the change earlier than usual. Come off the power and ease the stick through. Down is trickier - brake un...

Why did you go home in a breakdown truck? Why didn't you drive it home?

Re: Won't rev past 2000rpm under load

Ignition first but if that can't cure it suspect choke flaps (ooh err) stuck in closed position.

I see a thread conversation akin to Daisy's air leak at CoC a few years back coming on........

Re: Del Boys Capri

I'm guessing it was a similar scenario to the Minder and Professionals Capris with several different cars being used and numberplates being switched. That's why I'd never pay the extortionate amounts that these cars go for. How do you know it is 'the' car? :applaud: :agree: :applaud: :agree: :appla...

Re: High insurance on daily! why?

I genuinely believe that insurance is a complete rip off theses days. They seem to just quote you the first number that comes into their head. They definitely don't want your business....they couldn't care less. It's because they know you have to insure somewhere if you want to drive your car, so th...

Have you checked that the rad cap and the expansion cap are on the right way round? They are different.

Re: Capri 3.0 ghia value

I'm perhaps not the best person to comment on this, seeing as I hate the way capri prices have gone silly these days. I sold the last capri I had for way under what I could have got for it, but it wasn't worth that....in my opinion. What the above boils down to, is if you have the time to wait, hold...

Re: Question about Granadas..

Their motorsport successes were all on the banger track...plenty of wins there! Because of that, getting rare so prices will increase.
