A Bentley R Type came in with starting trouble. Turns out the car has two cracked starter motor brackets and has stripped the teeth on the flywheel. New brackets and flywheel are on there way.
On the rollers today is Martin Blooms Rover P6 following an engine rebuild. At 750miles since the rebuild we tuned to 3500rpm. Once fully run in Martin will bring the car back to tune the top end. Richard Long of the Southern Classics Society brought along his Triumph Vitesse for a tune up.
A varied range of tasks in the workshop this week. The E-type is coming along beautifully and now has paint underneath, the top will be painted over the course of the week. Dave Griffith’s Vanguard is getting repaired after an off at Mallory Park, but is also getting a new engine, larger and more powerful ready to take on the competition next season. A fresh engine build for for a classic Mini as well as some fibreglass products for a BMW CSL Batmobile.
