    I have a crack in my 2.8 expansion tank. Does anyone have a spare that they would be willing to sell and post to Edinburgh?

    2.8i 5 speed. 2x previous Capris.
    It could be worth posting this in the Parts Wanted section for a quicker response. Also give Martin at Caprigear a quick call.

    Capris!
    If you have a bit of cash to spare upgrade to aluminum

    Fit and forget. Few of us have these now. After i went through 3 second hand plastic tanks thought it was a better economy long term

    Alternatively for about double that price Germany Capri club have new plastic ones made from original moulds look like factory units

    Ooft! Pricey. Looks the business though. Funds are a bit tight so I’ll hold off for a used one for now.

    I fitted a mk1 focus tank to my 2.8, didn't take much effort and likely available new for peanuts on ebay.

    I have one I was going to put on EBay if none of the traders can help you. Try them first though.
