Re: Crankcase emission valve 2.8i

At a guess I'd say it's probably be ok to use, the original item is a one way valve, allowing crank case vapours to be sucked into the inlet and burnt. The new one will still do that (confirm that's how works before installing it), but it will also allow vapours to escape when the engine not running...

Hi all can anyone sort me out with some pics of how the brake pipes clip to the inner wings in the engine bay, on those raised round areas below the servo and expansion tank (2l pinto engine bay)?

Servo push rod to bulkhead grommet

Does anyone know of a good replacement for the 2.0L servo push rod to bulkhead grommet? Mines just an outer ring of crumbling rubber now :cry: Does the mk 2 escort item fit/ work well? I can't seem to find a Capri one anywhere, Sierra looks similar but I don't have one to measure up. Any suggestions?

Re: Half Shaft end float?

Oh and I measured the end float while I was at it, 0.6 mm, seems a lot more when you can see the shaft move out and feel it clunk.

Re: Half Shaft end float?

Ive popped the drivers side half shaft. Bearing is fitted correctly and all the float is in the bearing. Its a looser assembly than what I'm used to seeing in a sealed bearing but as Steve said new ones have about the same movement too. It appears in good condition, no seal damage and no metal piece...

Re: Half Shaft end float?

Thanks to all the comments regarding the end float. I was as surpised as you to find end float wich is what prompted the initial post. Its equal on each shaft which leads me to believe that it could be normal, but i understand it could also be some wrong on both. I will pop the half shaft and doubl...

Re: Half Shaft end float?

I really appreciate you taking the time to measure a new bearing, that puts my mind at ease regarding the end float. Im considering fitting an lsd diff unit and im a fairly experianced mechanic so with a good read up, i feel i could complete a swap / rebuild & set up myself. I understand about the m...

Half Shaft end float?

Hi you lovely lot! Ive been tinkering with the capri recently and have discovered end float / play in the half shafts of 1 to 2mm. Is this normal? No leaks from the bearing seals. I did fit new bearings years ago, probably put a few thousand miles on them, then stored until now. Each shaft has rough...
