So been away for a few days, coming back to the issues with a clearer head.

I’ve tried the earth and it seems fine have tried in different spots, the wires have 12.2V coming to them but with the pump running it will only read 10.5V is this right or do we expect the fuel pump internals could be issue? It is a brand new pump but I’m starting to think it’s worth buying a different one?

Again thank you all for taking the time to help me out

Its a real simple thing to do and bloody hard to explain here , like I could show you in a couple of mins if you were here, honestly your better off googling it as they would be much better at explaining than me , its a real handy way of diagnosing poor connections in a circuit , like plug in connectors that have corroded inside , faulty switches or damaged wires or poor earths.
EVERYBODY that owns a capri should know how to do this :D as older cars and motorbikes suffer from these faults a lot.
