The workshop team at the Bridge Classic Cars Suffolk HQ have been working their way through the 1953 Armstrong Siddeley Hurricane as part of its recommission.

The first stage of this round of work was to rebuild the distributor. Our technician Jon carefully inspected the unit in the car before deciding to remove it and more thoroughly going through the part on the bench. After checking its operation, Jon completely rebuilt the unit to ensure it worked correctly.

Then the whole piece was put back into the car and wired up.

Next, the team completely went through the lift pump for the fuel tank. Jon removed it from the car to completely go through every single piece making sure it all worked correctly and any gaskets were remade and the unit put back together and installed back into the car.
