Re: 3.0 Ghia - Problems

Hi,

Just picked-up this thread so forgive me if you’re sorted. If not, I’d suggest you Speak to Secialised engines in Essex. There’s nothing these guys don’t know about the Essex V6. Always found them really knowledgeable and helpful. I’m sure they’ll be able to help or advise.

Cheers
Paul

1979 3.0 Manifold to exhaust flange

Hi, anybody know where I can lay my hands on a 3.0 mk3 manifold to exhaust flange? It's the cast iron one that has hole centres @ 75mm. I'm struggling to get a hold of one and it's the last piece of the puzzle! It broke when I took it off. AAArgh.

Cheers
Paul

Re: Capri 3.0 Ghia Auto For Sale Oyster Gold

Hi, the weather is looking ok for Wednesday. Let's chat again on Monday to make sure it's looking dry (ish). I can then confirm. I'll be there in the evening, sometime around 5pm. Be good to see the MK2 and see what you think of the MK3 as it is now.

Re: Capri 3.0 Ghia Auto For Sale Oyster Gold

Hi Gary,

Thanks for the warm welcome. As I write this the Capri is mid-assemble and looking fantastic. Thanks for the heads-up re the magazine, however Jez had left me a copy of Retro Ford. So please don't put yourself out looking but thanks for the offer.

Cheers

Re: Capri 3.0 Ghia Auto For Sale Oyster Gold

Hi Paul and Rob,

Paul, yes I am local and it would be great if you could get to Rickmansworth on the 2nd? ? Rob, it looks to be a great car and I absolutely love the colour/interior combo also. With a little bit of TLC I'm sure it'll turn a few heads.

Cheers
