Nerodino... No medals required, just been in your position more than once and at a time long before the internet, a time when finding solutions was not quite as simple as it can be today. Just happy to TRY to help a fellow petrol head..(-:

The Capri I typed of was a rebuild by a meticulous friend everything was painted and protected the idea being preservation in use.... which added it`s own degree of complication relative to chasing electrical earths... Spent days following circuits trying to figure out the logical operation, the fuel pump control being the last... Had access to spare relays and much else to swap things over in a bid to resolve the issues.... having worked through the system with difficulty, the final act was unplugging and plugging back up the connectors a few times and miraculously it operated as it should.... go figure..!!!

Sorry to read of your new issues... !!! So you end up with oil in the exhaust... have heard of turbos using up all their lubrication oil as fuel due to the seal in turbo bearing failing allowing the lube to enter the induction tract until the engine ran out of oil in a process of self destruction..! Well at least you spotted the issue early enough to avoid damage and you do not have an oil fouled cat to replace...but it will run smokey even when repaired and rebuilt if you do not try to clean out the exhaust system...?

Thanks for taking the time to provide an insight to your trials and tribulations... Good luck..and let us know how you get on... any pics..?

Looking GREAT nerodino, my 77SC had the same colour scheme and trim package, I liked it a LOT. THANKS for posting the pic just as in a pic of a pretty thing, it is always best to leave us wanting more...(-: Hope your engine issues are sorted soonest, but no point in rushing it in this weather..!!!
