MGC thorough service.

One of our customers has recently purchased this very nice MGC. The car will be stored with us as he lives abroad but he plans to do some driving in Europe with it so a thorough inspection and service was required. We’ve replaced the head gasket, rear spring shackle bushes, coolant hoses and fuel hoses along with some other items. It was missing a spare wheel so a new one was ordered along with a matching Firestone F560 tyre.

Frogeye Sprite axle and engine recondition

Lindi Galloway has owned her Frogeye for over 40 years. It has been restored during that time and looks very presentable but lately the rear axle has been making some noise and engine has become somewhat incontinent. The axle was stripped and cleaned, the differential was rebuilt and the whole thing re-assembled with new oil seals and gaskets. The 948cc engine was removed and partially stripped. The bearings were checked and turned out to be in great condition. The engine was re-assembled with new gaskets and the front rubber sump seals from the 1275, part number TAM1171, on both the front and rear of the crank. These are far superior to the original cork items.

Rolling road tune for a lovely Frogeye Sprite

Lindi Galloway has owned this Frogeye Sprite for 40 years. The car looks superb and is now running much better with after a rolling road tune. The fuel mixture was very weak so a new set of needles went in along with a fresh set of plugs before the twin H1 carburettors were balanced and setup.
