Thanks Bearhawke.
Will have to look at that, cause the ford 9 inck diffs seem to be a bit rare.
Also have to make some time to go looking for the St170 calipers.
Been working on engine, stripped it down and found a few bent pushrods, so will have to get those.
We fitted the engine into the car, needs some hammering to get clearance from the firewall, and also have to make new mountings as current ones dont work(angle is off).
will keep you guys updated.
Ciao

Hi all.
Well it's been a while, a lot has happened.
The Capri mk1 I had ended up being scrapped, so I decided to abandon that.
Bought a Capri mk3, which I now plan to put the v8 engine into.
Sending engine and diff off next week for up grades
Still looking for the brake upgrade.
It takes the same brakes as the mk1, so still on the prowl for st 170 brakes.
Here are some pics as I bought it.
