Re: speedo cable lub

The crazy thing is that if you remove the speedo and the inner cable snags inside the drive it can pull the inner cable out of the gearbox end even with the outer cable casing still attached to the gearbox which unless your extremely lucky means jack the car up and reconnect the inner drive cable ba...

Re: speedo cable lub

Hi Steve,

Sadly the speedo cable will only come out from the speedo end even on the V6 models, I think its designed that way so that you don't accidentally pull the inner cable out of the speedo if removing the cable from the gearbox.

Re: transmission jack

Hi Mc,

I'm lucky as the Type 5 box has a drain plug, I have heard of a few people who have done exactly what you just described on the Type 9 box

Re: Are speed cameras safe?

All this talk about speed limits has made me think, I simply don't have the guts to drive fast anymore, I have a few 3 litre Capris some of which are really jazzed up and easily capable of breaking 130mph and yet when I get to about 80 - 90 mph my arse starts to flap, all sorts of thoughts start go...

Just bought a Mk 3 and the rear door cards have holes just behind the ash trays. Photos on line show some kind of clip - anyone know what these are?
Mk3? With rear doors? Never had one of those.

Decent looking Scania? never seen one of those either!

Re: Changed My Original Condenser!

Hi Danny,

Does the condenser mount inside the distributor or on the outside? If it mounts on the inside I have loads of original Bosch items, I could send you one if need be.

Re: does anyone recognise this capri

Thing is though the advert says the car will soon be tax and MOT exempt but with these modifications will the car still qualify?

Re: Unusual Capri wheels for sale

Selling these wheels that were on my capri at some point. I have 4 all with tyres. I think all the tyres hold air apart from one. I saw a set of these on eBay which were silver or silly money, not sure what they are! But I need the space so time for them to go to a new home. Message if interested. ...
