Re: M16 brake calipers

i split one many years ago to better clean and paint it but couldn't ever get it to reseal correctly. At the time though second hand Ford calipers were remarkably cheap and easy to get hold of from a local scrappy so i didnt even try get as far as replacing the o ring which must have been the guilty...

Re: Loads of parts for sale! And a Shell!

Please could you ask him about the side windows. Is it the set of 4 with the back ones being openers ?

Re: ESRT32 Radio Repair

Just had a look at Tadpole's site. They are definitely at the top end of the market. A rebuilt Motorola 717T with DAB and Bluetooth comes out at a significant £ 1,902

Re: Dash top

I tried one of the leather dash covers at first but then moved onto a CCI dash shell. IMHO it looks far better and makes a permanent repair of it.

Re: Passenger door mirror

Martin at Caprigear has hem. I bought one a couple of years ago. I think they are plastic bodied now but look exactly as per OEM originals.

Re: Sportex Exhaust 2.8i

When I got my 2.8 the Sportex exhaust on there insisted on knocking against just about every part of the underside that it possibly could. The previous owner was apologetic as he had just put it on and couldnt get it right. I actually sourced a standard original exhaust & cast manifolds but when I w...

Re: Newbe alert.

If it still has the original single barrel vv carb it may be worth replacing with a standard 32/36 Weber & manifold from a 2 litre. A cheap and cheerful upgrade which usefully narrows the performance gap.

Re: 1980 Ford Capri L 1.6

Welcome back to Capri ownership. You got that for a good price so as long as you control costs by doing some of the work yourself you have a good investment on your hands. I had a standard 1.6L in the late 1980s and loved it. There is very little difference between the L and the GL; the L has the mo...

Re: Newbe alert.

The only crossflow engine that made it into the Mk3 was a 1300. It was only an option in the lowest levels of trim and was quietly dropped after a few years. As they were the cheapest way into Capri ownership some people dropped 1600 crossflow Mk2 Escort engines in them, a few more bhp without much ...

Re: Back to a classic!

I still think they look far better than any of the Mondeos that followed. Still not sure why Ford turned their back on RWD.

Re: Bad clutch or adjustment? Also strange noise.

Ive been in the same situation in the past, whatever I did to the Weber I had just didnt seem to make any difference so i bit the bullet and bought a used, known to be good, replacement. It made all the difference in the world. I was never certain what was actually wrong with the old one, some said ...

Can you clarify the request a bit. Im sure you've used all the right words to describe what you are looking for, just not necessarily in the right order. :headscratch:
