Ugh....Wife came home in her 94 NA spewing antifreeze and dead passenger side regulator.  Tiny coolant hose under the distributor blew. Replaced and running again....with a window stuck down.  It only a sunny day car...so no worries.  I have a spare passenger window regulation built by you know who, so that will be my next rainy day job.

That's a good afternoon job. Hopefully no damage done.

thanks Jack....no damage done.  Looks like it waited for her to get to our driveway before it split.  Car still runs good...she is a happy camper!

Discovered my had misplaced the journal I have been keeping for five years. It contained info on part numbers, interchanges, specs, and other general info that I used to help newbies and others who had problems and questions. Now I've got to start over and have never had any luck with the search feature.

I am back to a three Capri family again. A one owner, 1993 XR2 with 13K. The catch, it hasn't been fired since 2000.

Nice find Jack. You know what to do and not do at this point.  So many of these newbies want to try to fire it up right away without flushing everything and be sure it has good gas  It looks in great shape from the picture.

Thanks, the soft top is in tatters, the paint on the top surfaces is gone or pitiful, the interior is filthy from sitting, but the clutch works and it has the tightest shifter I've ever felt.  I'm hoping I can bring it back to life like I did the first one I ever had.
