Re: Twin webers on an everyday capri

Feel I didn't add the necessary adulation for running a Capri as an everyday driver. Good one.

Re: Twin webers on an everyday capri

good genuine dcoe' are not that thick on the ground Thats the crux of the matter. The guy is probably right that the twin set up is overkill, but I bet he knows he will be able to flip them to a waiting project somewhere. This does leave you wondering though whether you really need your carbs, so I...

Re: 2.8i Oil in water

Read this about 3 times and struggling to think of any other entry point for oil into coolant if the oil cooler has been taken out of the equation. But, if I had one new head gasket that had caused low compression on a fresh built up engine, I would not trust the other one either and replace them bo...

Re: Another KGF Capri

Flipping heck I've only just noticed this post. This Mark 1 from KGF belonged to my father from 2000 until he passed away late 2015. We sold the car Nov 2016. Mileage quoted by KGF, and on its MOT from February this year suggests it basically sat in a collection and did bugger all for 4 years, which...

Re: Engine hardware

I think the point is that any bolt that's the same size as the current ones will do. These are not high stressed fittings, they are just holding the covers in place firmly enough to be oil tight. Only word of note is: don't forget the little spring washers on the diff cover bolts - these stop them w...

Re: Tracker Locate

I dunno, a post-apocalyptic look is a refreshing change from toothbrushed concourse jobs.
A mint 280 and its ironed-jeans owner wouldn't have got in that music video would it?

This why you favour the 'not-worth-nicking' rustic look?

Re: Tracker Locate

the guy gets a free bump to his topic if nothing else. He got a free JOKE, and there's nothing happier than that. But to be on-topic, the guy who did a bit of engine work on mine last autumn was all about those Aldi type trackers mentioned above. He said he has a couple with pay-as-you-go SIMs in t...

Re: Opie Oils

They are not mega cheap, but they offer a good value-add service and I use them as a source of Valvoline VR1 which delivers straight to your doorstep.
Sell spark plugs and other service parts too.

Re: Underbody clean up - 2021 recommendations

Good link, will try that, then put Cardinal red over it. Underneath its not that bad, just a few areas where flaked to bare metal so will prime it and then cover it with the Bilt Hamber Dynax UB which is a soft black gunge that never goes hard, that should protect I reckon.

Thanks Jason.

Re: Underbody clean up - 2021 recommendations

Hi, I've got a similar query, and its similar enough not to start a new thread. Had some sill replaced a few years ago and a localised paint up over the top. Easy to blow in as it was all below the lovely big rubbing strips. Now this paint is flaking off (see pic) in fact you can see the spray job w...

Re: Esso Fuel - No Ethanol

Hello and I must say I read this and got excited. Capri got used yesterday and as it was pretty much empty I thought I would take opportunity to brim it with this ethanol free stuff. I noticed at the Esso station though that even the Supreme+99 has an "E5" sticker on the pump, suggesting it has Etha...
