I think Summit had starter rings for sale. You just need to know dimensions.

There are various excellent Capri manuals but yes, that is the Haynes you need, as per your link.
Haynes is perfect for standard users.
IF you want repair power steering rack or rear axle gear ratio change, I suggest getting whole service manual.

Hi all, not sure if anyone uses this company, but I can strongly recommend them. Really know their stuff and always happy to advise on oils, filters etc. I've been using them for my Z4s and their service is excellent. For example, they mistakenly sent me 2x 5 litre bottles of oil when I'd ordered 3...

Re: Newbeeeee .....engine size change 1.6 to2.0

I dont understand why you would take off twin piston m16 calipers and fit single piston mondeo calipers .......even the lumpy old 4 pot princess calipers would be better .....no? One thing bigger/better brakes are better at is better control at the point where the tire looses traction and skids . S...

Forget drums buy disk kit.

Buy silicone hose kit they last longer, they can be bought black if you want to keep original look.

All polyurethane bushing is suggested too.

Re: Ford capri laser 2.0 or capri 2.8i ???

Have the best of both worlds and get a 3 litre Essex engined Capri instead, no injection system to worry about and more torque than the 2.8 Cologne engine as used in the 2.8 injection and the Essex V6 sounds better too! Wayne 3.0 is like wonky dinosaurus that makes clonking noice because of horribl...

My feeling is Ford thought the cooler necessary so maybe that is the problem but I'm no expert on that side of things. Need to add that I am using E85...
