Re: Sportex exhaust for mk3 2.8i v6

I had several clearance issues on the Sportex on my 2.8 but that was down to the way it was fitted by the PO. A bit of time spent slackening off clamps then carefully rotating and moving each part in turn met with complete success.

Re: Capri Interior (Brown cloth)

The Ebay description should really be edited to remove the line saying it was taken from a 3 litre as it will mislead potential buyers into thinking this was a standard interior for a 3 litre S or Ghia, which it isnt. This is a Mk3 Capri GL interior which would only have been fitted as standard to a...

Re: Capri Interior (Brown cloth)

Is it from a Ghia (integral headrests) or from a GL ?

Re: 1973 Capri Gearbox

Its a tricky thing to answer- whether a version of the type 9 gearbox made for a 2.3 Lima cylinder engine that wasnt sold in the UK would fit a 2.6 Cologne engine. Safest response. buy a type 9 gearbox from a 2.8i with its standard bellhousing. Ensure clutch driven plate on the 2.6 engine is compati...

Re: 1973 Capri Gearbox

Wouldn't a standard 4 or 5 speed type 9 box from a UK spec 2.8i fit this engine ? Surely the 2.6 was just an underbored 2.8

Re: WTD Capri 2.0s Interior

whether the interior was Strobe or the earlier Carla check will depend on when it was made. Check behind the rear seat pads to see if the build sheet sticker is still there.

Re: New webcon carb

This looks good. A couple of things: Ive read a bit about the Holley Sniper as a self contained all in one EFI carb replacement for V8s. Is this a similar principle but with the ECU mounted externally to the carb bit ? Would it offer a performance, economy and reliability increase over the mechanica...

Re: Parcel shelf mk3

Ive had a CCI shelf in mine for 3 years now. The finish looks the same as the original but should be stronger as it is made of better materials.

Re: What engine

Yes I think they kept the same bolt pattern all the way through to the CVH and Zetec Engines.
It all changed with the Duratec as they went over to Mazda's bolt pattern then.

Re: Tapping noise

Definitely change the oil spray bar above the camshaft. Its a very quick and easy DIY job to do. Some take them off, clean them with solvent or compressed air and put them back, but they aren't expensive new. A good bit of preventative maintenance in any event.

Re: 2S or laser

It does look an entirely genuine late spec 2.0 S to me. Automatics would have been rare on the earlier S, as most 2 litre automatics then would have been ordered as a GL or a Ghia. There were many more automatics in these later spec S cars as by then the model range for 4 cylinder Capris had been re...

Re: Fuse Box question

I tried the same thing with soldering the rivets with the same result. It might be feasible with a stronger soldering iron but a 15 watt / 25 watt general purpose soldering iron just wont do it due to the amount of metal that needs heating up. After a couple of attempts I got a good second hand one ...

Re: Rear seat latch problem

The hinges are on slightly elongated holes, if you slacken the bolts you should have sufficient adjustment to make the backs latch comfortably. Its best to remove the seat back pads from the metalwork to give you most access. The retaining nut for each seat back is from the rear, under a hidden flap...
