Good luck, good looking job.  My first Capri, the PO had used Radiator Stop Leak, several cans apparently, and all the small lines and passages and even hoses were plugged.  The hose from the back of the block to the IAC was solid.

I avoid stuff like that, it creates more problems that it solves in my experience. Stop Leak, oil additives, it's all snake oil to me. Routine maintenance and paying attention to your car prevents many issues from cropping up in the first place.

Got the gas tank back in with new fuel lines. I do need another rollover valve as mine was broken.

That's good to know. When I worked at a parts store we did not carry much for the filler neck. Good to know, I imagine the stock line falls apart the second you need to mess with it.

Mine split at the tank connection just enough to make it useless.

This is what I used, 10 inches needed:

Don't bother trying to put your year and model in, it brings up stuff for the Mustang-based Capri.

Also, if you buy the 1-7/8" filler hose from an auto parts store, check to see if it's the flexible kind first. There are some hoses out there that are rigid and won't flex to go over the raised portion of the metal tube on the tank and the metal filler under the fender.
