I have photos here if only I can fathom out how to put them up.
If they are small files, you can add them directly to the forum by clicking on the "attachments" tab, shown near the bottom of the screen when you are writing a new post.
Otherwise, upload the photos to postimages.org first, them copy and paste the link text into your post. If I haven't explained it well enough, there is a more detailed explanation here:

Picture of back box too large. Will try to reduce it and send later.

This doesn't show the shape of the back box too clearly, but it is oval/flattened like the middle one.

Well done Margaret!
As they say you learn something new everyday (And it's only 10.00 :lol: )

Ebay sellers need to clarify between the 1.6 and 2.0 as someone will buy the incorrect parts. Back boxes fit 1.6 and 2.0 though.

Hope this helps Turbo t should he wish to proceed.

I haven't spent half my life with a Capri not to have picked up something up along the way. Can't tell you the number of times I've bought an item in blind faith only to find it wasn't the right part because the seller didn't know any better than me. But I'm older and wiser now, or so I like to think.

If this doesn't help Turbo t to proceed at least it might prevent him making a mess of things and losing his credibility.

I had an ss system custom built in-situ with the car on ramps at a Powerflow agent and it's still going strong on it's second car after....at least 25 years. I would be interested in one for the spare car. Every chance there's a Pinto Capri near you which you could use to build a system on. One issue is the sideways axle movement that can mean some pipes foul on the tyre under hard cornering.
