Ady Bridge Classic Cars’ engine specialist has been working on repairing our 1959 Ford Consul’s engine. The valve seat had to be re-cut due to debris found on the seat. This debris was blocking the valve from closing fully and losing compression.

We machined the valve guides to allow bronze sleeves to be fitted.

We recut all the valve seats and refaced all the valves, then lapped them in. After that Ady refaced the cylinder head, washed clean and then refitted to the engine.
