    Could anyone offer any advice please . Removed engine for respray and now refitted having trouble starting . Changed fuel pump and have 7bar pressure to metering head , change warmup regular , checked timing and distributor all ok ,

    She will run if I keep my foot hard down on accelerator , just about run . I assume fuel issue and could it be metering head itself ?

    I could do with some trim repairs if your wife would be interested. I put some generic grey dye on my half leather seats badly but when i tried some leather cleaner on it the new colour came off on the rag plus it doesnt match. Also the centre panels could do with more padding and lumber support. I also need steering wheel covered Plus the saggy cloth seats in my old MGB tightened up. Chris<b...

    Hi, my sender works but the solder round the pipes leak, i thought i could put the electrics of mine on one of yours but iv'e now discoverd its not that easy, the part that houses the electrics is welded to the pipe so needs to be dismantled and i don't want to go there, electrics not my strong point. looks like a new one or good 2nd hand. Thanks, Brian.

    Hi guys
    I'm looking for a legal chassisnumber + documents for my new capri project.
    I hope you guys can give me some offers of models you have + price, that would be awsome!
    I would prefer documents + chassisnumber of a V6, which one doesn't matter.
    Thank you very much!

    Hi Wilky
    I see you are a fellow Sheffielder. I've re-joined the forum as I want another 280. I spotted that 280 on EvilBay and am in touch with the 'owner' but treading very very carefully. Do you know its a definate hoax (Is there a register kept to say who actually owns the car) or is it just your suspicions given mileage and price? Cheers, Andrew

    Hi mate.
    I contacted a guy in Belgium who I have bought parts from before - he has a LHD power rack available. Do you need the hoses as well? He wants €260 delivered to me in Dublin including the hoses. I can get it to you for approx €70 - maybe less depending on the weight. I'm told it is in good condition, but can't guarantee of course.
    Let me know if that helps you out.<br...
