Re: Esso Fuel - No Ethanol

30% more fuel for same power as before. But in my case since power rised then maybe +50% fuel consumption on peak power. Ah that makes more sense. Thank you. Your initial statement seemed to read more power for same fuel. Need to add that E85 has properties to clean engine, if you look under valve ...

Re: Esso Fuel - No Ethanol

Am I right in thinking it’s mainly rubber fuel components ethanol attacks? Or does it do the nylon fuel lines as well? Olly W I changed my cars copper fuel lines to An-Teflon fuel lines when I noticed fuel lines were too small. Inside core is plastics, I think nylon works well with ethanol. Ethanol...

Re: Esso Fuel - No Ethanol

It is just a matter of using Viton-O-rings. I am going with E85, running great so far for 3 years. Totaly Supreme fuel compared to 98E5, since it same as 106 octane and burn colder, so allows more exhaust flow, also you can get 2-3 ignition advance on full power. Only fault is that it won't work wel...

Re: Ford Capri 2.6 1973

Open pictures in paint, then resize them maybe to 30% from original size and then save in JPG format.
You can also upload them in services like imgur and copy the IMG link here.

Ford Capri Mk1 72-> adjustable rear shock/springs.

The problem is that i might need to rise/get rear axle higher. What is the best way to do it?
Is the available height ajustable rear shock absorbers/springs?

(The reason is that I ordered a set of Calvert low-profile Caltracs and they reduce my rear height by 3,5")

Re: Got a broken lip/spoiler from painter

I was wondering if there is anything to attach towing poing if I try to use those "air holes in spoiler"?

https://www.burtonpower.com/fia-approve ... oweye.html

I got one of those, but requires holes and atleast minor welding to get it to fit.

Re: Got a broken lip/spoiler from painter

Need to attach towing holder somewhere... Depends how you fit it. With the spoiler being so low it is likely to become damaged when towed. A lot of people simply make it easily removable and use the original tow point, if there's one welded to the cross-member, or lash around the cross-member itsel...

Rear light bulb holder for rear lights

Rearlights, Since I never found how to dissable facelift rear lights, atleast try to updade to leds. Any idea is there suitable aftermarket BAY15D/BAY15s Holders that fit directly? Accordly my measurements dimension is something like 30mm for holder. https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ak0ev910-aPVgYIQrGlbsyV4VEsh3...
