Re: 2.8i Oil in water

Have you done another compression test on the pot that was only showing 100 since changing the gasket? If its still low I'm thinking cracked cylinder :(

Battery earth to block gets my vote. Stick a jump lead from neg to bellhousing and see if that helps.
That's exactly how I resolved a similar problem on the 2.8. Everything seemed clean and tight but the jump lead proved otherwise. Changed the earth lead after that and all was fine.

Re: Headcorm Kent. 23rd May.

If this does go ahead and you get there, I trust you have a great time. All the b...

It's a good way off yet and they're leaving the biggest job to last - assessing and probably renewing the main...

Great stuff, thank you Danny. Just one question though, aren't they the same hand? I'm pretty sure that the offset hole should be on the opposite side for one of them, so they will fit left and right.
You are right Paul, they're not a pair

Re: Rear wheel arch rust

Sadly a pretty common problem in a Capri, especially as they are getting on in years now. The proper answer to the problem you have is to cut the rust out and weld in new metal. The outer arch and lower rear section are readily available over here. If you have no experience of welding then I would a...
