Re: Knocking noise

Before you get too deep into it, are you sure it's a mechanical clunk, and not a knock being generated by driveline shunt due to the engine faltering? I had something similar years back - turned out to be the coil breaking down. But if it is something like that, how come he's only getting it in low...

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

They hire a brand new Sprinter on Monday with a good tracker fitted by the hire company, they stick a few hundred quids worth of blocker on it and leave it...

Re: Ford capri laser 2.0 or capri 2.8i ???

I've had both and I'd go with pinto too - lighter, therefore handles better, simpler and easier to work on, cheaper to mend. And If you want more power the modifications are more plentiful and considerably easier to implement. And in stock form theyre MUCH better on fuel.
