Re: £75000 Capri

2,350 miles from new... serious question, doesn't that mean it's going to have loads of issues with regards to bits seizing on?

Re: Decal and badge

Re: What clutch is this ?

How many splines does the friction plate have? I bet the smaller friction plate is from a Type 3 gearbox.

Re: hardened valve seats

My pinto was fine for 5 years of being thrashed and then VSR began. Started on number 3 and now all of them close up after about 1000 miles. Heads coming off soon and having hardened inserts fitted.
