Just thought of something. How's the fuel pressure? I'm wondering if something like the regulator might be opening at regular intervals. Otherwise all I can attribute the regular ticking to would be either a relay or the cabin fan. Couldn't that ICM cause the dying also?

Yeah, its one of the weirder things, since its always ticking at the same bpm.

Anyway, now she is starting to die immediately after startup.

Crank, 1k rpm, sputter, die.
All in about 1.5 seconds.

I ordered the new icm that should fix the CE light, but I'm getting worried...

I'm also buying an ebay engine and I've sourced a rebuild kit ;)

So there might be teardown/walkthrough of building a Mazda B6D.

I'm Raymond from Long Island N.Y.  I recently discovered these little spitfire of a car.... A friend had one in the 80's. I just acquired my first Capri, a 1991 form an original owner  with 39k miles. She was loved and will continue to be.  I have always liked oddball, unique, unseen cars. I also have a 69 Opel GT, a 2010 BWM M6 , and a 2004 ML 430.
I say a car for each if the seasons.  Glad I found this site.

Hi Ray
Just returned to this site after many years away. Your post caught my eye with the 69 Opel GT. I worked in the service department of a Buick dealership in the early to mid 70s we sold and serviced a lot of Opels I loved driving the GT.

Bought my Capri because the first new car I ever owned was a 1973 Capri 2600, V6, 4 speed. I loved that car and if I could find one Id buy it!

I have several parts available:

Knock Box - $90 shipped

Clock Spring - $45 shipped

(Pair) XR2 Front Hubs/Knuckles - $80 plus shipping, $70 plus shipping without rotors. One knuckle is missing a backplate. I can include the rotors, but they should be resurfaced. If you don't want the rotors, then I will remove them and shipping will be cheaper. Calipers are included.

Trunk Latch - $30 shipped

Driver and Passenger windows - $15/side no shipping.

For pictures, text me at 815-954-6342.

You can check sites like these..

...I like Discount Tires stores even more. They bought the last 5 Liquid Metal Chrome Drifters in 114.3x4 that I found online (factory clearance) at my request and verified the fit with 205/40/16s, guaranteeing the fitment, and matching the web prices I presented. And BONUS, they are smart enough to use glue on inboard side rim weights.
You may not have the $ for new, but checking with experts like them can verify the offset required. They actually pulled out a book they have and verified my selection, guaranteeing that I would be satisfied with the clearance.

Actually, I think I got off on a rabbit trail there.. Offset and rim sizes will vary depending on whatever stock wheels you want to compare with the capri. So, If you want to compare stock specs, here are two things you can do: search TeamCapri for terms like offset and wheels, (I know there are some good previous posts here - maybe under the parts from other cars category?

Or, if you want to dig in and do your own research, RockAuto.com can provide you the specs for just about any car rim ever sold. Start with our bolt pattern but keep in mind that the offset (backspace) hub diameter, bolt pattern, rim diameter and even the projection toward the outside of the car (rim width) can play in finding a fitment that does not rub inner sidewall on strut, or struggle with hub diameter issues (usually plastic insert rings can make oversized hub holes snug on the stock hub, making a different wheel "hub centric " see Discount Tire again, I got all 4 of mine for $5).
