Recommissioning our 1934 Austin 10

In our workshops this week we have our 1934 Austin 10.

The car has been off the road for some time so a big part of the recommissioning will be to work on servicing the engine and getting her up and running again.

Along with the engine, we’ll be looking to correct some paint defects and re-fit the rear glass which has been taken out.

A couple of unusual but very innovative design features have been added to the car which worked as a quick fix to a more underlying problem. The fuel pump has been by-passed and a 1 litre bottle has been piped up to gravity feed fuel into the system.

Clever…but not practical.

We will look to repair the fuel pump to enable the car to run much further than where a 1 litre can take you.
