    Capri V8

    Bought on here a couple of months ago. Now nearly sorted.
    Pics to show the Dave Kindig influenced bonnet vents I did before the respray - yes, it really is that shiny!

    It has a 305 SBC with TH350.

    Engine bay shot as requested!
    Interesting points to note. Have a look at the alternator adjuster. The battery. Etc.

    More pics to follow. Should be finished this week. Didn't I say that before?

    Are they giant battery terminals or in that a golf cart battery?
    Engine fits like a glove and looks like it's meant to be.

    It's a Lithium battery. Works well - I have one in my Bentley Turbo R track car too. Amazing things, no weight, yet loads of power. Smoke and mirrors I reckon - even as a long term engineer these batteries make my brain hurt!

    Yes, it does look like it grew there. Makes for a really good sleeper of a car as the outside looks pretty stock.

    Cool

    Lovely motor

    I don't know the 305 and out of interest is that a stock waterpump!?
    Presume you have an lsd rear to hook it up lol
    Dean Moon once asked if my car was full of bondo. I lied.

    I will find the answer at the bottom of this glasses

    I think it's a stock pump as far as I know. It has the axle from the donor car. Chevy Nova I think. It has an LSD fortunately. Last bits of trim showed up today, so that bit is done. Had to trim the converter cover to clear the new geared starter. Not much that isn't new on this. Gonna have to go though, as a new project starts over Christmas......

    No. Normal alternator is OK. These batteries don't like being run totally flat though.
