Slipping off topic...

....Jack, your state is gorgeous.

I spent a lot of time poking around your two lane roads years ago and really enjoyed it. It nearly led me to moving to the Asheville area when we were looking at retirement/re-careering options.

Sliding back on topic...

...what do the rest of you do for winter storage?

Cheers all,

Steve

lol......The Cherokee are has the best roads, but Asheville area had the best interest otherwise.

Back here in NC the weather doesn't get that bad for any length of time. This past weekend the temps were mid 60's and I was out for a little top down pleasure.

Following for later, I've repaired all my weather strip problems with black caulking but would love to do a proper job instead of surviving off dead pieces

I don't put mine away for the winter either.

In Colorado I can usually find a day or three here and there through the winter when I can take mine out for a drive, sometimes even top down (and bundled up with heat on full blast (which is good for the whole circulatory system anyway).

I never pull my battery for the above reason, but I do keep it hooked to a modern charger/maintainer for best health. Like you, I also keep a window down and the top up for best interior and top health.

A thought, though... Even with tire pressure up like that you might want to check it through the winter, my factory aluminum wheels don't seal as well as steel wheels usually do, and I double check valve stems for tightness. Even with a few weeks of sitting tires will develop flat-spotting that might become permanent. Perhaps consider jack stands if it's going to be off the road for two or more months?

Yours looks to be in much better shape than mine = jealous!

Cheers and best all!

Steve

We don't winterize.  We continue to drive them on non-precipitation days.  Of course our Capri's are domesticated and live indoors!

hahahahaha.......mine are manly.....they live outdoors

I found a company that had been in business for a long time that will rebuild yours, I think for $70. Unfortunately I can't find the link. New ones aren't available.  Time to Google search.

Moving forward with some more repairs to the capri

Wanted to get some feedback on readily available Timing Belt x Water pump kits that are compatible with the Capri

I'm also looking to replace the fuel pump & sender
The fuel pump is working but is in a rough state, I'm not sure what will fit and what would work in our cars, aftermarket pumps look alien compared to what we've got.

The fuel sender shorted out once before and doesn't provide a signal to the fuel gauge.

Thanks again Capri Fam
