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?

I have a 1992 XR2 that I am looking to sell.
This capri has the grey leather interior, and is mostly stock.
It does have a "rocket chip" installed, along with a manual boost controller that is set for 10 lbs.
I purchased it used, with 113K mile on it in May 2007.
Right now it has 182K on it and is in the garage for the winter.
I do not drive it in the winter...and I have put less than 5K miles on it per year for the last 5-6 years.
I replaced the clutch and rebuilt the turbo 10K miles ago.
It has a black cloth top; both the 15" triad wheels and a set of 14"-5 spoke wheels.
I have the hard top, caddy, and tools that go with it.
I had it repainted a few years ago with a base coat clear coat finish.
The car is "chevy victory red".  The hard top and the rear spoiler are both painted black.
I have many extra parts that go along with it.
Sorry this is the only way I could figure out how to post the pictures.

I am asking $2,500 for everything that I have that is Capri related.
If you would like more information, you can email me at; or text/call me at 724-344-7550.
I work 8am-4pm EST.  I can text during that time; but can't always answer the phone.  If you call during that time please leave me a message and a time when it is good for me to call you.
