The rebuilt Vauxhall Cadet engine

Although it has taken much longer than we first hoped for (mainly due to how rare the parts are), our 1932 Vauxhall Cadet engine has now been stripped, cleaned and rebuilt. The insets, cork gaskets and coreplugs have all been replaced. The block has been bored, the flywheel refaced and we have overhauled the water pump.

The pulley has had to be remade, we’ve welded and refaced the exhaust/inlet manifold. the rocker cover has been polished and 2 new rocker cover screws have had to be re-manufactured.

The block and head have both been refaced.

Next week we’ll refit the engine back into the car and get her back on the road once again…she’s been too long off!
