In preparation for Goodwood’s 73rd Members Meeting we have managed to squeeze some slightly larger wheels and tyres under Mike Haigh’s Ford Falcon. It’s gone from 14″ to 15″ and from 500 width to 550.
John and Alun Edwards brought their ex-Gerry Marshall Triumph Dolomite Sprint to us before Christmas for a few small jobs. The carburettor spindles were very badly worn and no longer available so a new set of Webers were duly fitted. There was a serious oil leak from the cam cover were an oil fed a spray bar over the rocker gear. We re-engineered the spray bar and did away with the oil leak before running it up on the rolling road.
Ian Burford’s Austin-Healey Sprite “Lumbertubs” has at last received an invite to race at Goodwood. Originally built in the early 1960’s the car has been campaigned for many years in many different specifications. Ian Burford has owned the car now for the last 3 years and campaigned it extensively. He will now be looking forward to driving the car in the Les Leston Trophy race at Goodwood’s 73rd Members Meeting.
