1957 MG A Roadster

Underside – New and Trunnions on the Front of the 1957 MG A Roadster

As part of getting the 1957 MG A Roadster to ride better, the team have been working on the front suspension of the classic sports car.

On the inspection of the car, Jon noted the rubber bushes and trunnions had begun to deteriorate. So, the team have systematically gone through and renewed all of the various pieces with brand new units. These were then checked and tightened to spec before the car was put back on the ground and tested.

Once the team have road tested the car reported back, the car will be ready to go back to its owner.

Back Together – Finishing the Service and Fixing the Carburettor on the 1957 MG A Roadster

The workshop at Bridge Classic Cars have been working on finishing up the service and carburettor rebuild on the 1957 MG A Roadster.

To start with, the team have installed the jet tube into the rear carburettor and installed the whole unit back onto the engine. As part of this, the team have also cleaned out and oil the K&N air filters to give the 1.8-litre 4-cylinder the best airflow and as part of its service scheduling.

After this was done and the carburettors were checked for leaks, which have been reported to working perfectly, the team could move on to adjusting the tappets.

The tappets and valve train were all inspected and adjusted to the correct specs before the rocker cover (complete with new gasket) was fit back onto the engine.

Stripped – Inspecting the Carburettors on the 1957 MG A Roadster

While carrying out the service and inspection on the 1957 MG A Roadster, the Bridge Classic Cars team found a leak coming from the rear carburettor.

The unit was taken off the car and stripped down on the bench for our technician Jon to get to the bottom of. Looking into it further, the team have found an issue with the jet tube on the carburettor which has been ordered for the car.

First Off – Servicing and Inspecting the 1957 MG A Roadster

The 1957 MG A Roadster is up on the ramps in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop at our Suffolk HQ for the team to inspect and service the classic roadster.

The team have worked through the car methodically, from front to back. Every suspension component and driveline piece has been checked over to make sure everything is working just as it should and is in good condition for the owner. This is also to try and find out the issue with the ride that the customer has brought up on the car.

Whilst carrying out the service, the team have also checked everything in the engine bay. The team did find a leak from the carburettors of the car which will be taken off and stripped down on the bench.
