Certainly looks ‘vintage’! Probably for the best it’s been changed!

You've reminded me, changing the diff oil is a job I need to get done on my Mercury. 

Sincere apologies for the thread drift but do you have a thread on the Mercury Dan? Can't find it. Back on topic, the Mustang is looking awesome and I'm still sulking that I couldn't buy the VX

@Asimo  I've centered  it better now but thats "as std" 🤷‍♂️ it only has too deal with the- damping forces not suspension forces

 

 

@Matty  I'd have loved for it to stay in the shitefold. Next time, tho I suspect it'll turn up witha  5 digit price  sadly.

Long as it turns up looking roughly the same. It'd worry me someone will pineapple it. Still though, their car now

I’ve not really updated it for some time tbh. Various updates etc have gone in other threads too but: 

It was from around the time Photobucket started arsing around so I’m not sure all the photos are there anymore either.

I should probably start another thread or combined thread for all my stuff? Might be a better plan?

 

Sorry for the hijack LHg. 
Mustangs looking fab! Still love the colour👍

He knew his 60s and 70s vx stuff well -he spent an hour going over it before making any buying noises. I guess a good extensive renovation if not a full  restoration is on the cards. (I hope not a quick washa nd a flip  tho he didnt seem that kind)

 

 

Hijack away Dan  - I need to read that now I'm back up to speed with your let's be honest rather lovely Capri - in fact I thought if you yesterday when I saw an ad for a Mercury like yours for just £2k -condition consummate with asking price.

Car continues to car.

Though in the last 2 weeks it has felt somewhat hesitant at times slightly rough running but only momentarily. The usual visual inspection of opening the bonnet and sucking teeth while vaguely poking  like I knew what I was doing yielded little obvious culprits.

Till yesterday when I opened the bonnet to show a friend  and petrol was liberally dripping out of the carb from the  accelerator  diaphragm.  Opening it up and the rubber had given up  where it meets the metal disc.  9 quid and one was on it's way and arrived today. Not quite the right fit - my screw holes are slightly closer, but making it fit was about 5 minutes work with a punch and the leak is gone, performance restored and improved and no puddles of petrol.
