CAT Anti Corrosion System.

Hi, I've just come across this interesting advert in a 1994 magazine for the CAT Cathodic Anti Corrosion System. Did anyone buy one back in the day? For sure, there's some bold claims being made in the advert! I think that this type of system is used on oil rigs and suchlike, but I thought it needed...

Re: Car Pulling - Diagnosis

Tester refused to test brakes on the rolling road because he felt that testing each rear brake individually on the rollers could damage the diff so he drove the car to test them. Hi, Is that standard practise for LSD? It sounds to me like the tester just wanted to have a drive in your car! Who can ...

Re: Car Pulling - Diagnosis

arrived at test centre 3 mins late but passed with no advisories so happy days. Oh yes, no longer pulls so steering was the culprit. Case solved. Hi, Fantastic news, glad to hear it's all sorted, despite the last minute panic. We've all experienced that before! :) Now it's time to hit the road and ...

Re: Rubber Bushes

The first ones look like inner TCA bushes, but 24mm ID is too big I think? (The 24mm ARB is narrower at the point where it enters the TCA bush sleeve, about 19mm or less?) Thanks Steve, I've just double checked the measurements of the rubber bushes (top two photos). The ID tapers to around 19mm in ...

Rubber Bushes

Hi, I'm having a clear out of my box of bits and came across these. I'm not sure what they fit, or even if they're to fit the Capri. They don't look familiar, but someone will identify them, I'm sure. They are all unused in the original packet. If anyone wants them they can have them for the cost of...

Re: Peers.dupp's 2.8 injection (Updated 7/6/14)

Loving your work too Mr Dupp, that tank tidy up looks awesome. Mine's needing a new rear valance over the winter, so I reckon doing that work you've done there would set it off a treat too :guitar: Hi Mike, Thank you for your kind comments. As I've said in one of the previous posts, the underside o...

Re: CAPRI V6 2.0 Cologne firing order

No idea, but to me, common sense would expect it to be the same as a 2.8i. 1-4-2-5-3-6, with No1 at about the 1 o'clock position viewed from the front of the car. Hi, Just to clear up any confusion, on the 2.8 the 1 o'clock mentioned is roughly the position of no.1 lead in the distributor, and 4,2,...

Re: "The Brookside" Capri 2.8

Likewise, but I think I wish the car well more. Been a bit shunted around and seems a lovely Capri from the photos. Hi, I agree with all of your comments in the previous post. As you say, it's a real shame to see the car for sale so soon, as it appears to be in stunning condition and has clearly ha...

Hi,
Then you can save yourself £102 by not needing to buy a NOS winder handle!

I think the 2.0 Cologne V6 was fitted to the German-market Capri instead of the pinto :shock:.

Sorry, I can't help with the firing order.

Re: 2.8i family restoration

Hi Rob,
How is the resto coming along on your special?
Are you taking the car to the Pontarddulais show at Pembrey next month? If you do go, I will come and say hello if I see your car.
Keep up the good work on the Capri!

All the best,
Andrew.

Re: Peers.dupp's 2.8 injection (Updated 7/6/14)

Great looking car Andrew. Looks like you really look after it. I like the fact it's kept looking as a capri was meant to look with no mods. I enjoy seeing a well executed modified car as much as I like to appreciate a hardly driven concourse example, but a pristine example of a capri that you're no...

Yes it certainly looks to be in superb, well looked after, condition. And don't forget the 240BHP! :burnout:

Re: How do i understand a VIN plate

Found the build sheet behind the seat. Wonder why it says Ghia on the top? Hi Neil, It's good that's the sheet was there. 8-) Is there another sheet there with more info on? I don't know why it says Ghia. As you probably know, the Ghias weren't made as late as '84 and didn't have 2.8 engines. I'm s...
