Classic car technician Steve has been working on our 1968 Triumph Spitfire.
He removed the broken hand brake pivot and fitted a replacement. He also replaced the worn o/s/f top ball joint that was causing corrosion to the joint.
The o/s/f track end boot was split so this was replaced. The n/s/f complete track rod end was also replaced as the old one had excessively worn.
Steve then adjusted the tappets and fitted a new rocker cover gasket. While working on the car, Steve noticed a hair line crack on the gearbox rear housing so he has marked this for repair.
One of our storage cars, a 1968 Triumph Spitfire was looked at by technician Steve recently.
He cleaned the washer bottle as the pump was blocked and the hand brake had a broken pivot. Steve also noted that the rear shoes were wearing thin.
After being safely hold up at our storage facility for the last few months, this 1968 Triumph Spitfire has patiently been waiting its turn at our Pettsitree HQ.
This 60s British roadster will be handed over to our technician Steve to begin his work on getting the car back on the road.
Make sure to check in very soon on the Bridge Classic Cars news page for more updates on our 1968 Triumph Spitfire.
We have recently welcomed two new arrivals into our secure hangar at Bentwaters Parks, a 1968 Triumph Spitfire and a 1963 Triumph TR4.
These classics will be with us for a while until the Spitfire is ready to be recommissioned and the TR4 is potentially going to be restored in the future too.
In the meantime though, they are safe and secure surrounded by other beautiful classics.
