Re: 1.6 pinto blocks and heads and heads and blocks

I was thinking of something uprated such as a Felpro or Cometic head gasket from Burton Power - but Ive just realised the cost of the latter. Ive always had good results with Victor Reinz gaskets which are sensibly priced and Im sure the CCI one will be a good quality standard gasket too. it might b...

Re: Laser featured in opening spread

For the Collectors edition Capri book will it be possible to request the same number as ive got for the TCYAPY Collectors edition (490) or does this have to follow sales quantities ?

Re: Help! Take a look at the Capri timeline

Interesting to see te Laser was mainly for the UK market. Did they carry on with the LS, S and Ghia for longer in the other markets ?

Re: 1.6 pinto blocks and heads and heads and blocks

I would go: 1.6 Emax block with 1.6 non Emax head. Use a bog standard 2.0 camshaft (but with a vernier sprocket so you can adjust it absolutely spot on). Use a quality head gasket because you will have slightly higher than standard compression. You will need the 2.0/Emax cambelt as the one for the e...

Re: heard it all now....

Very AC/DC- though the last I saw AC/DC live Axl Rose was covering vocal duties in place of Brian Johnson. So more like AC/D... Their support act Rival Sons was well chosen though and have become increasingly well known since. A new band id very much like to see live one day is Greta van Fleet. very...

Re: heard it all now....

Listening to them now. Excellent. Great to see the late Lemmy in the video. I bumped into him once in the Marquee club in Wardour Street, he'd just turned up to watch a band with everyone else, was happy to chat to everyone and went home on the tube.

Re: brexit

+1 for that Aldi compressor. excellent value. I got one on recommendation I'd seen on here and though ive not used it for painting any panels as yet I have given it some fairly heavy use spraying lots of damp/ woodworm treatment on a house i was doing up. A really good compressor. About 20 years ago...

Re: Axle fitting

Well, Martin said it wasnt a difficult job and he was right. -loosen wheel nuts on both rear wheels -Jack the car up and put strong axle stands under a suitable position on the body -Move the trolley jack to just under the diff, dont actually lift it, just let it very slightly take up the weight of ...

Re: Not a Capri but....

A nice car. Forgot how light and airy the Sierra cabin was. I can never understand why they replaced it with the fwd Mondeo really. Ford could have just kept evolving the Sierra and kept a serious foot in rwd territory.

Re: Handbrake rod touching rear spring ?

It was a combination of 1 and 2. With the handbrake cable adjusted and the weight back on the wheels there is plenty of clearance again.
