  1. Cheers Simon. Gay Dave Hasn't Taken the Plunge Yet..
  2. I have decided to sell my Robin Hood S7 I need to start doing more on my Westfield, and I'm not doing it because I have the Hood to drive. It has a 2ltr Pinto with a 32/36 Webber, and five speed type 9 gearbox, adjustable Gaz shockers on rear, Spax on the front. I've done loads of work over the couple of years I've owned her. Including narrowing the tunnel to fit better seats and put bracing underneath to strengthen the tub. There's too much to mention all at once. I have lots of pictures to document all the work done. I travelled 1100 miles around the Highlands last year with the Mrs. And the car didn't let me down once. The paint work is in need of attention as expected for the age. MOT till June 2017 I would like £3000 but also invite offers. Anything I've forgotten please ask me.
  3. Hey Guys & Gals. Does anyone know the Fuel Running Pressures, Hot & Cold for a Capri 2.8i engine? I have a 5bar system pressure. I'm still bloody struggling to make the thing run proper!! If any one can help, or know of a garage or someone who specialises in old fords I would be very grateful for any help. I'm at my wits end with the bloody thing. Cheers Darren.

    Alternator

    Thanks for that. I'll get it checked over the weekend. I put her away in a bit of a sulk last night. But we're talking again now.

    Alternator

    Any body holding on to or wanting to sell a 2 litre pinto alternator? I think mine died last night?!? Not tested it yet, so just putting the feelers out. Cheers. Darren.
  8. I'd like to wish all the members a Very Merry Christmas and a Splendid New Year. Hopefully see you all a little more next year. So to the friends I've already met and the future ones I hope to meet. All the Very Best. Darren.
  9. Dave if you get fed up or cock it up!!! Give me a shout, I'll have a word with our polisher at work.

    2.8I

    Are there any Ford 2.8i specialists within the club? I've just acquired a new vehicle with a 2.8i up it. And I'm struggling to make it start without having to faff with air flow metre and the like. It has been stood for four years mind you.

    Log Book!

    The car in question is built well and registered pre IVA/SVA it belonged to a friend of mine who passed away and it's been sat in the Garage for the last three years or so. He was a mechanic and I think he registered it to stay away from Q plate, I know some details, but it's a long & strange story. I was just wondering if there may have been a way to register it as what it is without having to go through SVA. And I imagine the insurance company's might be tricky.

    Log Book!

    If you were to get a car that has been registered "Spuriously"!! e.g it said Fiat two seater sports car on the log book and it's obviously a Robin Hood or something. How would you go about changing it? Darren.
