I used the Hella ULP30 with it mounted in the rear under the spare tyre cover. Made a vacuum tank approx 60 dia x 150mm long. I used a pneumatic 8mm line one way valve and vacuum switch for control. Photos of the brackets I machined.

Notice the bonnet Spud only now with injection stickers and paint. Nice.
Jamman welcome back.
My unmistakable bonnet from the Perana. Some like some don’t but everyone knows this one from SA purely by its mark.

hey Spud, I never realised you had a Capri the same color as mine (although it was probably a fair bet as due to how many actual cars you seem to have around)
I've not seen another one in the flesh in Ice Blue or Blue ice whatever its called..
 
Now I know how my car would look with bumperettes.
Spud I'm guessing yours are original from the rest of the car, but are they fibreglass or steel?
 
Anybody know if the fibreglass ones that pop up occasionally are any good?
Whools is probably tripping over them ATM in the old country

if I used an external pump I would have installed it with the filter - RS2600 style - under the spare wheel well. But the "in the tank" pump is so much neater

You've done so much machining work jamman - very interested so see it all come together- what a great skill to have - I'm envious

I've cobbled together all of the capri bits I like best on this one - the blue ice paint (it was originally stardust), RS3100 spoilers etc, RS2600 headlight surrounds and decals, Australian del mirrors, grill, T5, LSD & rebels, and now - injection!

Don't bother with the fibreglass bumperettes- (these are steel) - the indicator assemblies don't fit up the best on the glass ones

Got the distributor back - all nicely machined, manifold now has all the sensors plumbed in and a nice linkage set up!

Yes hopefully it'll look ace

Funny, given the number Essex v6 capris sold world wide, the lack of performance parts available
Windsors, chevs, even Australian built motors - there's a lot more gear (comparatively) with which u can tart them up

Very clever spud .You going to polish all the alloy?

The only thing that beats HORSEPOWER is TORQUE.
You can sleep in your car but u cant race your house.

Thanks for the comments

No cleverness involved just a true believer spending a lot of money!
I won't polish it - it'll never be a show car (I have fitted a chrome sump etc to it but only because they were in the pile)

The missus is heading overseas soon for a while so I'll go crazy on it then 😎
