The engine of our Ford Transit MKII Tipper has been in the care of classic car technician Steve recently as he has been stripping the engine. While stripping the engine, Steve found that the coolant passages were blocked and it had a damaged bore so will need reboring along with new pistons.

Steve also found the old gasket sealer at the bottom of the sump, before various engine parts were vapour blasted.

The heater box was stripped, cleaned, and its internal parts were recommissioned before the centre dash console was cleaned too. The heater vents also underwent a big clean.

While Steve was working on the engine, classic car technician had the wheels of our Tipper in the paint shop where he primed them ready for painting.
