Capri 2.8i metering head

Post by Kelvin Pugh »

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me which fuel pipes go to which metering head port.
1.The one on the side nearest the radiator on the side
2. The one on top in the middle
3.The three on the side nearest the passenger wing side.
I took them off and didn't take photos (silly me)

Thanks Kelvin

Hi Kelvin,
They are as follows:
1. Warm up regulator (larger banjo).
2. Cold start.
3. From the front to rear:
Warm up regulator (smaller banjo).
Fuel tank return
Fuel feed (from fuel accumulator). There is an arrow stamped on the metering head to indicate the direction of fuel flow.

:goodluck:
Andrew.
