I'm not familiar with that circuit and don't have a schematic, but I'd start tracing out that circuit if it's not supposed to be grounded. It sounds like that may be your problem, if it's grounded and not supposed to be.

Close-up pics of the rear wind blocker?  Is that home made or modified?  Very nice looking car....

Sorry, no pics. The engine didn't move at all, I used all the mounts that I had from the auto, or replaced with better ones from my parts stash.

What was the G-type?

Thanks for the info!  I did fine one on Ebay that's guaranteed to work, so we will see.  It was worth a try at the price, but I may pick up a new one just to see if it will work as well.

Any way to post pictures? It sounds like a G-Type, but could be from an Escort GT.
Does the engine lean forward 15 degrees towards the radiator?

Just picked up another Capri, after not having one for a few years. 91 N/A 5 spd. Same as my last one.......sorta. Here's where the question pops up.

My last car was a non runner with an auto when I bought it. I fixed the crank snout to make it run, then put 30,000 or so more miles on it. I bought a junked 92 N/A car with a 5spd and a torn down motor to get parts to convert mine to a stick.

A forum member (here or yahoo, I don't remember) from Long Island was offering a pile of Capri parts for free, I offered to come get them, and got a small trailer full of parts from him, including a low mileage 1.6 with attached 5spd, spare knuckles and axles, top and some body parts.

I tore my runner apart and installed the low mileage motor and manual trans. I used the pedal and hydraulic clutch master n slave, and shifter from the 92 I had at home. I had to use axles from the pile of free parts, the 5spd had equal-length shafts.

My 91 that I just bought, and another parts car that I just pulled some stuff from have unequal length shafts.......hmmmmm.

I start reading up on these transmissions, it looks like the XR2 cars have equal shafts, but a cable clutch........hmmmmm.

I found some pictures online, of the jack shaft that the turbo cars used, and that looks to be the same setup that I put in my original car, but my transmission was a hydraulic clutch.

What transmission was in that pile of parts that I got from Long Island?
