Re: Capri 2.8 mystery

The mystery continues. When you pulled up outside my house the other day I could swear you had a shark grey interior. A couple of hours and a few coffees later and it had turned into half leather. The shark grey looks great in my 1983 car and we both now have age appropriate interiors. Excellent res...

Re: A new classic

It has to be said I do adore the look of the current Mustang. With the styling and finish Ford have managed to make it downright prestigious as well as somehow every inch a Mustang, even though like Dr Who the car changes with every incarnation. Hang on, paint it green and give it a different name, ...

Re: 3.0 Ghia - Problems

Sadly the 3 litre Essex is the Capri engine that I know least about. Is the fuel filter original and does this sit between the original mechanical fuel pump and the carb ? Does the car have a separate fuel return pipe back from the carb to the tank ? Have you tried driving the car a short distance w...

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...

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...
