Re: Photos from Slavkov meeting (CZ)

Hi Tom, This brochure confirms what I though. It states that the GT4 was available in Strato Silver, Diamond White or Signal Red 80. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Capri-GT4-Mk3-Limited-Edition-1980-UK-Market-Foldout-Sales-Brochure/174128676966?hash=item288ae0c066:g:crYAAOSwew5a1Ga1 Andrew. Thanks...

Re: Photos from Slavkov meeting (CZ)

So based on your clues I think it was available in red/black. I always know only silver with red stripes from advert posters. Until now. Thanks! ;...

Photos from Slavkov meeting (CZ)

Hi, last saturday I was on meeting in Slavkov castle here in Czech Rep. There were around 900 cars, but only 3 Capris. Two red (one of this GT4 - not sure if it was available in red with black stickers back in the day) and my glacier blue 2.8i. Here are few photos if you want to look. ;-) https://ww...

However, I think it's only sensible that anybody interested in buying a set should check with the Club before parting with the cash.
Of course! :agree:

Re: Accumulator

If you swap the fuel pump relay for a Lucas one, it will run for a second or two when the ignition is first switched on, helping to prime the system.... Hi, last year I bought new original pink fuel pump relay from Ford dealer and it makes that pressurization too, when you switched on ignition. Pre...

Hi Tom, The last time I went to a Ford dealer to check on stock levels of the white ones, the parts man told me that they had a new FINIS code. No problem I thought, until he brought out a black filter. It looks as though the white ones are obsolete now. I bought a box of 10 from a Ford main dealer...
