  1. I had this very issue on an old BMW E39, spent a fortune on new front wheel bearings and it was the nearly new tyres making the noise. I wasn’t vexed at all about it, honest
  2. There will be a threaded hole on your cylinder head, it’ll be on the rear end of the head at the passenger side facing the bulkhead. if I remember correctly. The wire will have a crimped ring at each end with a “loose” black insulating cover on it.
  3. I think that every Capri I’ve owned has a small earth strap that runs from the rear of block to a self tapper-type hole in the centre of the heater box steelwork I can’t see if there is one on your car in the pics. Could also try running a jump lead from the block to the body somewhere just to eliminate earths? One 2.8i I had was using the clutch cable as an earth as the connection between the block and battery negative was loose, needless to say it melted the cable and gear selection impossible!!
  4. Seats look right for the car by the way, as its a later 1600L isn't it? Unusual to see that it hasn't "inherited" a set of 2.8 seats to be honest!!
  5. There is a way around this without cutting the bezels, fiddly but doable. With the front lights off from the car, remove the outer light/headlight by slackening (not fully removing) the three screws that hold the headlight retaining ring and rotate the ring clockwise, allowing the light and ring to come away from the backing plate. Fit the backing plate onto the headlamp bowl first (4 screws) and then offer up the headlight/retaining ring/bezel in one go, headlight nearest the car, retaining ring on the light and bezel last like a sandwich. You have to put them in that order as the retaining ring lugs won't go through the hole in the bezel. Then manoeuvre the headlight into position so that it locates into the cut-outs in the backing plate, mount the retaining ring next, making sure the "Hella" stamp is at the top and turn it anti-clockwise so that the ring goes under the three retaining screws. The bezel will move enough to allow you to get a thin Philips driver in to nip up the retaining ring screws. bezel can then be aligned and screwed into place.
  6. How good does that 440 look?
  7. These are all parked up in a lane that has many privately-owned single garages, apart from the ones beside the Volvo and Tigra where three have been knocked into one but retaining the three doors. In the fifteen years I’ve lived beside this lane, there has always been a fair selection of tat parked up. All of these seem rooted apart from the Tigra and the white Land Cruiser parked in front of the X Types
  8. Mot ran out in December, still showing as taxed though.
  9. These ones are parked on the access road to a local police station.
  10. Correct on all counts! I live behind the Rosehill Shops.
  11. This lot are well known locally, disintegrating E Type in the front garden, Jensen Interceptor behind the Polo (which is a GT from memory), not sure what’s behind the Jensen, Rover P4 at the back . I wonder what is in the garage? The owner apparently still has a Sapphire Cosworth that used to sit where the Polo is, an 80s Bentley Turbo R and an early Impreza turbo. Nothing has ever been for sale I’m told.... I always wondered what this van was as the front is obscured by thick hedges. It’s been parked in this garden since I moved in around the corner from it in 2005. 1994 Transit according to DVLA. This one looked a bit neglected and hasn’t moved for a week or two but it’s all legal and appears to have had only one owner too Flat tyres and no road tax on this one.
  12. Apologies for the long distance photo
  13. These are the ones that I reckon were/are dumped This one was here during our last visit in Feb 2017
  14. Some more Not sure what the power plant is in this truck, a huge V8 most likely, it sounded incredible That rental again!
  15. Some more spots from our recent trip to San Francisco. There are some that I reckon are dumped but they are not in my area as such so I will add them at the end Not sure what this is..? Beetle maybe? This Land Cruiser has been parked in this spot on 19th Avenue and Kirkham for as long as we have been coming here, around 10 years now Rental for the trip, 2020 Camry with 476 miles on it when I picked it up.
