Re: Capri 500 Prototype

A turbocharged Capri may have just left too much of a price and performance gap from the 2.0 Lasers though. I suspect if they hadn't gone the 500/ 280 route the 2.8i special would have been due for a minor update and it could be said that a change to roadwheel size and seat colour would have done th...

Re: Choke flooding engine

I changed a 38/38 on a Pinto to manual choke and found i hardly needed to use the choke at all for starting. It was really only needed to set a fast idle for the first few minutes of warmup.

Re: sunroof stuck

Im sure more experienced people will be along with advice soon but I would suggest you start by carefully removing the sunroof section's headlining to provide more visibility of what is going on. Then with someone else to help you carefully raise the corner which has dropped and (carefully) see if t...

7 spoke alloy. 2.8i Special

standard 7 spoke 13" wheel from Injection Special. Usable & not too battle scarred. This was my spare so no centre cap £ 35 ? or whatever seems fair. Located Southend.

Re: Laser + GL

From owning both a GL and a Laser and what both cars were fitted with, would you say the Laser was really the direct successor to the GL or was it much more based around the S ?

Re: Modernising the Ford Capri

Cazza, I hope you can return to the forum to discuss through your ideas. Modification is possible but you would need to assess the cost versus benefit of each. There are enough modified capris around but most of these are resto mods, in other words cars that were in need of restoration and have been...

Re: Is my exhaust Legal? MOTable?

The way the rules about exhausts are interpreted does seem very subjective For example the majority of kit cars have loud and often entirely unbaffled exhausts, usually exiting at the side of the car and sometimes with a long sidewinder type exhaust box running down the outside of the car. Each kit ...

Re: Is my exhaust Legal? MOTable?

It would be interesting to know what difference to performance and economy the absence of back pressure would make.
