    Been that long since I took A69 apart that I have forgotten where the rubber circulation tubes for the cooling system go. I have 3 I can't find a home for, and which pipe goes onto the servo. Have taken some pics, will take more if needed. Could anybody with a 2.8 take pics of what goes where and I will try to figure it out. Old and doddery Finn.

    Can't tell from the pics on most of them, but in the last pic, that hose crosses over to the heater matrix. The brake vacuum should come from the main vacuum source on the engine - On my carbed one, goes to the intake manifold.

    Found one of them, from the oil cooler to bottom of expansion tank. I had mounted the oil cooler in the wrong position! Finn.

    This may be of some help. The hose from the thermostat housing is for the heater return.

    Thanks for all the help A very wise and learned Capri Aficionado once spake unto me. Bag and tag young Finn. Take pics young Finn. These words were spoken with a Scotts Burr in the voice. I should have listened! Finn.

    Glad to hear it's sorted, I'm released from kitchen fitting duties, so I can have a play with my toys.
