Fuel tank

Postby andysstag » Mon Apr 09, 2018 8:31 pm

After coming near to the end of a major restoration on my 2.8 injection I need to get a new fuel tank and just found out that the Capri club and Rickover aren't getting them in till July.i am a bit frustrated as I asked the lady at the club about the stock of tanks a couple of months ago and she said they have plenty,which is why I didn't rush to get one and help me spread the cost.just wondering if anyone knows of any or willing to sell me one ahead of the new stock coming in July time.
Here's hoping Andy

Hi Andy.

Contact Martin at Capri Gear. He had one left beginning of March so may still have it. Otherwise ask him when he can get more. Worth a try. Either message him here at Capri Gear or call him at his workshop.

His number is 01507 343148


All the best

I will be getting new stocks in July.
My original batch of 2.8i tanks sold out within 10 days of me getting them.
I only have two standard ones left, for the 1.6/2.-0/3.0 models.
