As classic car technician Steve has been spending a bit of time with our 1959 Austin Healey 3000 lately, he has noticed a few issues that needed to be addressed. Over the last week, Steve has been working to resolve these issues ready for it to be driven to Hampshire by its owner very soon.
The first task Steve completed was to fix the driver’s side door check strap back into place. Once this was done, he went on to fit a new rear fuel filter.
A small oil leak was found from a previous sump repair. Steve removed the sump and it was cleaned and welded to resolve the minor oil leak.
Steve also cleaned the carburettor pistons and float bowls too.
Our 1959 Austin Healey 3000 continues to be prepared for its upcoming road trip. It won’t be too much longer before we say goodbye as we watch it drive out of the workshop and back out on the road again.
