Recommissioning work is underway

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]So we’ve been hard at work this week on the 1958 MG Magnette.

Mark, our newest technician, joined us at the beginning of the week and has got stuck with this recommissioning project being his main priority.

1958 MG Magnette Engine Bay

So far on the MG Magnette Mark has worked on the following:

  • A full brake overhaul – linings, cylinders, master cylinder which incorporates the clutch master.
  • Brake pipes refurbishment.
  • Drained the age old fuel and replace with new fuel throughout the system.
  • A full engine service.
  • Fuel pumps have been test now the new battery has been connected.
  • The pedals have been taken out to investigate whether any work was required behind.
  • Lower half of the dashboard is now back in place but not securely fitted. The dash has however lit up which is a very promising result. A few safety checks have been carried out and we’ll see over the coming days whether anything else needs to be worked on before the dash gets tightened.

So far so good on a car that has been sitting dormant for over 15 years.

On Monday Paul Johnson – Professional Mobile Valeting arrives to work his magic on the bodywork.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
