  1. Terry. I had a great afternoon and enjoyed the company enormously,Thank you and your family for the hospitality and hope you now have a little more incentive to finish what I think is a very impresive build. Danny
  2. Ian. I have just read your reply again and see you mention pin 40 going to earth, I think from memory pins 20 and 60 do as well,I also think there are at least another one or maybe two more earth wires on the EEC1V. Danny
  3. Hi Ian. The injectors have a constant positive feed via the ignition and are switched (pulsed) on the negative side via the ECU. A simple voltage test would determine which route you needed to take to find the fault. i.e constant live feed or no switching from the ECU. If you have a wiring diagram for the ECU make sure you have all the earths connected as I think from memory there are four or five. Danny
  4. You say you have continunity to the injectors, Do you have positive voltage to the injector plug or to the black wire in the D shape plug? Danny
  5. Remove one of the injector plugs, And with a volt meter check if you have a Positive voltage to one of the terminals in the plug (black wire) I think, Do this with both the ignition on and during cranking. If no voltage then check the two D shaped connectors to the rear of the fuel rail. Unplug them and check again at the terminal connected to a black wire in one of the connectors. Hope this helps Danny
  6. Hi Graham, I have no pictures of how it was made and it passed sva no problem. The lower dash had another two layers of ply glued behind the bottom edge and then shaped and rounded off before I coverd it in the foam and leathercloth. The clock surround was made using ply cut to the shape of the capri clock bezel and the holes cut using a fret saw and then sanded the edges. Danny
  7. Here is my attempt using plywood coverd with foam and leather cloth and a set of capri gagues.

    Hi Graham, Sent you a pm. Danny
  9. Sorry Steve,I ment to ask is it an orange (bosch) cap with a two peice plastic type shroud, If so it may be worth a try with the shroud removed, Easily done once the captive screws holding the cap on are removed, Danny
  10. Is it the type with the dizzy cap mounted on the end of the head with a black plastic two peice cover and held on with three scrws? Danny
  11. You say you got fuel (maybe too much) and I'm assuming you have spark to all four plugs so it should fire on all four cylinders also assuming you have good compression on all four cylinders too? In a previous life I spent best part of twenty years attending customers who started their cars up and turned them off after only running for a short while and started nearly every one in the way i described, Danny p s I stupidly did the same thing to my tin top a few weeks ago (I should have known better)
  12. Hi Steve, Is it injection? If so remove the fuel pump fuse, foot hard down on the gas and crank for a while and hopefully it will fire up and clear it's throat so to speak,obviously not reving too high if it does fire on all four,Replace fuse and crank with a little gas and see what happens, HTH Danny

    Hi Graham, If you'r using the wasted spark coil pack and the missfire is on numbers 1 & 4 they share the same coil so it may well be the coil pack,I have had the same problem with a mondeo and 2 focus, Hope this helps Danny
  14. Have a great birthday John and enjoy the day off. Danny
  15. Thanks Terry. When you say it like that, being 58 don't sound so bad. Danny
  16. Thnks Graham, Only another two years and I can trade the hood in for a bus pass,Any ideas what bus stops outside the Lambert Arms? Danny
  17. Hi Jonathan, If its any help, the sender I was given by the motor factors for my capri guage is white in colour Which is what I think the Northwest Hoods Site Recomends Danny
  18. Thanks John. What a lovely thought 58 candles = 58 yum yums, May need a bigger seat in the hood. I know he looks much younger Steve but I'm only a day older than a certain area secretary. Your so kind Mat, I may look younger than 58 but at times I feel soooooooo much older!
  19. I placed a strip of ally in the chanel to give a little extra pull on the cable even though I used the black quadrant.
  20. No problem Mat Providing the self adjuster is working and you think it might be that the inner cable is too long (wrong cable) you could try temporary spacers (washers) between ether the buklhead and the outer cable or between the bell housing and the outer cable.If it works then obviously you need the shorter cable.If not the problem may lie elsewhere. HTH Danny p.s Iv'e got a black one as well John !!!!!!!!
  21. Hi Mat, With the clutch cable fitted can you feel pressure as soon as you depress the pedal or do you start to feel pressure after its been depressed a little, and did you change the ratchet when you changed the quadrant? I wasn't not too far from you this afternoon giving the hood a spin. Danny
  22. Hi Mongrey Ours was sva'd in February and I taxed it last week without an mot at the post office, It didn't ask for an mot on the form and they didn't query it at the counter. Danny
  23. Very sorry to hear about your stroke Pete and wish you a very speedy recovery, Looking forward to seeing you at the next Thames Valley meeting you're able to attend. Danny.
