Re: 1976 Capri $7500

Pretty abrupt, not very accommodating, puts me off even though I'm not interested.

Just found this old post, I have twin SU’s on my Mk1 twincam , not seeing the performance that I am expecting so I came across a pair of Stromberg CD2 s’s . Fitted them today and seems to run pretty smooth, just got to wait until June before I can blast down the road to see if I have gained any ...

Looks like a good fit. Since found out exactly where the clips go on the originals. Wondered why the old ones didn’t stay in place, had no clips before.

Mk1 Cortina part install question

Just ordered and received part # T42 from owners club, includes some small metal clips. Parts are the cardboard looking triangular wind deflector pieces that slot down either side of the radiator. Anyone have a picture of exactly how they install? Thanks.

Sign identification

http://www.enfostuff.com/forum/userpix/485_Ford_sign_1.jpg A friend of mine recently picked me up this sign from a boot sale back in Blighty, can anyone tell me where it would originate from? Haven't seen it before. Almost looks like a tyre logo that I remember but can't recall which brand....almost.

Last post on my fuel gauge..... honest. It’s now working correctly , it turns out the gauge needs 10 ohms to read full. Gauge is new but the range is 20 to 200 ohms so I had to bend the max level tab on the sender slightly to give me that extra 10 ohms, well 10 ohms less. Not sure how 10 ohms give...

Here is what we found with the sending unit, voltage stabilizer, and fuel gauge on the bench. The voltage stabilizer turns down the voltage from 12v to a steady 5v. The sender unit reads 20 ohms full and 200 ohms empty. The fuel gauge gives a 12 ohm reading when empty. We hooked it all up and had th...

Thanks Bob, it's worth a try, I guess running a new wire from the sender to the gauge is essentially the same thing. I'm building up the motivation to swallow a litre of gas again and strip it down :cry:

MK1 fuel gauge.

I've started another post on my fuel gauge woes, don't want to get booted off the forum for the longest thread ever............... It's that time of year again where I can get some work done on the car. Planning on taking the sender and gauge out again and trying to find out what's not right. I'll b...
