Ady, Bridge Classic Cars’ engine specialist has been working on one of the last pieces of our 190SL restoration.

The old flywheel had some cracks in the metal so we have replaced with a bespoke machined steel flywheel. Along with the cracks, the flywheel teeth had signs of excessive wear. The old starter motor was catching the teeth and wearing them away. At this stage we have also fitted a new clutch.

We’re looking forward to hearing this stunning 190SL fire back into life very soon.
