Investigating the camber issues

With reports of uneven tyre wear to the offside front we were asked to investigate to see whether we could establish and rectify the issue. The camber had already been adjusted and it had been looked at by a number of other garages who were unsuccessful in diagnosing the problems.

Our Tommy has been trained in this kind of issue so he was quick to jump on to see whether he was able to find the problem.

With all of the adjustments reset he already had a good idea of what it may be. Whilst underneath he saw a bush that was not looking as healthy as it should but he needed to investigate further before making any decision.

After the adjustments had been made John took her on a test drive to see what movement, if any, would occur.

As expected, the bushes that Tommy found previously had not operated as they should and the adjustments that had been made previously were already way out. So it was time to remove the affected parts.

After a new set (both sides) of suspension arm bushes had been fitted the issue looked to be resolved.

Recommissioning our 1971 MG B Roadster

We’ve just arrived back to our Ipswich workshops having collected the beautiful little MGB Roadster for recommissioning, ready for the summer.

We were first introduced to the car back in October 2016 during our 1951 MGTD photoshoot at Priory Hall in Hadleigh. She’s been garaged for a couple of years and only taken out on a handful of occasions but in remarkable condition.

From first impressions Asa is very confident that it will not take a lot of work to get her ready for the summer. An MOT, engine service and general inspection will hopefully be enough to have her back on the road.
