    Classic Look Bluetooth Stereos

    Take in account, DAB+ is the only radio source within a just few years as FM is phasing out in Europe allready. Retro radios are a waste of money if they come without the DAB+. There are allready DAB+ transmitters with the bleutooth and USB features you can stick in your siggy lighter socket that transmits a signal you can recieve on your old skool radio. Must say the one I have is still humming as I still tracing the noise interference caused by my old skool genuine Ford Capri electronics..

    Kangaroo Mk1 1.1L Fiesta

    Assuming youre running the 1V carb. When you dismantled the carb there was a steel ball and a rod on top of it. Its sits inside one of the channels when you open the top cover. Normaly when you turn over the carb without the topcover they fall out jumping everywhere leaving you with a suprice....

    Classic Ford Show - Thank you's

    Had a good days out. Went in on wednesday traveling from Dover - along the southcoast, Hastings, Brighton to Southampton to collect GT40 parts ending at Kings Sutton near Banbury on a campsite that this year apeared to be an ant farm.... Did about 500miles that day so we crashed after a few Scotch. Thursday when we discovered the ant issue we moved the tent to another ( and only !! ) spot on the campsite with less ants and manged to have a few days to enjoy. Saturday of to Santapod where they tried to rip me off at 11am at the gate. 1 hour to early, thats 70 quit sir, I turned around and waited an hour ending up just to pay 20 quit for camping. Saturday was quit and sunday we had a good show. It apeared everybody was leaving early and even the traders started packing their stuf at 3pm. At 4pm most of the entrands where gone and at 5pm the showground was as good as empty so we left also, back to the ant farm where we already had paid for. Will look for another campsite next time... Monday we left at 0830 to vissit Rally Design to get some parts and a company called GTForte that apeared to be disapeared as both adresses we had where no good. By luck we didn't pay for the ordered parts. We had the ferry back on 15.45pm and arrived home at 20.30. Guess we did about 1100/ 1150 miles total. Will be back in about six weeks for Dragstalgia & Silverstone Classic.

    Wide fenders for a mk3 capri

    Fibresports is the original manufactorer of the genuine x pack wide body kit. They still list them. Smith & Deaking is bad fitment in my experiance (warped en wrong) In Germany, Peter Wade from WST still makes the extreme Suhe wide body kits.

    m16 caliper spacer kit question

    The spacer with the O- ring reces requires an O-ring on both sides. 1 reces is on the calliper half, 1 reces on the spacer. Plain side of the spacer goes on the reces side of the calliper. So calliper reces with o ring - flat side spacer. This spacer has a reces on the other side with o ring that goes on flat side calliper. Hope you understand

    Fuel Mixture

    Colortune is idle only and a waste of money. You want a wideband gauge system like Innovate LC1 or Innovate LC2. A wideband gauge system gives you information about driving conditions. I have fitted Innovate LC1 &2 to several of our Fords and it makes carbs easy to tune. You see whats hapening on the gauge, you react with changing main jets or air jets and find the resuld instandly. After that, dyno rollers are for BHP reading only as you allready have jetted the car properly.

    Escort mk1V6 upgrades

    Well, done mate. It must have be me pointing you in the right direction for legal registration. We have a V8 powered Capri that went the same route. Nowadays the 10-1973 rules have been extended to 1998. For that 4.0 engine, you might consider a home made "log style" sheet metal intake with the TB up front. That can sit as low as you want.

    2.0 pinto engine

    Its a Sierra engine, not Capri.This engine has never been in a Capri. So nice story but better foul some Vauxhal guys..... Would like to see the camcover off with pictures of the cam lobes to see if the 120K miles are genuine.. But with the correct engine mounts it wil fit Capri.
  14. Alex ( co pilot of Michel ) has to do 3 rally events for rally licencing. Most important, "finish" three rally events. Meaning Michel can not drive on the edge this year cause whatever happens they have to finish three events. One of these rally events, ELE Rally is at the same weekend Classic Ford Show is. Alex and Michel are trying to do as much events as possible hoping they will count officialy. They just had their first yesterday but I am not sure if it counts. If they can manage they will go to the Classic Ford show. But ALex his licensing has priority as Michel is building a GP4 BGD Escort mk2 to compete with next year. We had an issue with pets to look after that weekend.. Not many we trust with doing that. In the pic I am holding two.. We, JP & Linda might have a small change to go. If we can we sure be there. "If" we go, we might go in a rental van and not a Ford Capri. We have a GT40 project going on and like to combine the trip with getting essential parts from GT40 supliers in the UK. Our '73 Ford F250 is running a bucket to the mile with the new updated engine and might not be big enough to safely haul the tanks, glass windows, rollcage and so on + campstuff so I am thinking to rent a diesel van for a long weekend and collect the parts and do Classic Ford Show. That might aswell not be a Ford van, so it will be camping only and no standpass. Guess those modern diesel vans run cheap on fuel compared to an old fasion heavy weight 6,7litre V8.which consumes 1litre of lpg or petrol every 1.8 miles.... Its still about 1200+ miles to go... in all our plans. If we can make it, which we sure like to, we will be there!!
  15. Dutch crew are most likely not be attending this year. If we go it will be a very, very last minute decision. So dont count on Dutch crew parking this year. Sorry but choises are forcing us.
