The Bridge Classic Cars workshop have been inspecting and servicing the 1953 Armstrong Siddeley which recently arrived at our Suffolk HQ.

As part of the jobs we have been requested to do, the team have been methodically going through every system on the car to check both its condition and function. One of the first jobs was to check levels in the rear differential which was inspected and then topped up before moving onto the engine.

The team drained the oil from the car whist carrying out a visual inspection of all hoses, leads and wires to make sure everything was present and of its condition. Noted on inspection was the condition of the HT leads and a dryrotted fuel hose, which were both replaced.

The team could also begin to inspect and check over the brakes. These were stuck on/seized when we went to collect the vehicle from its owner so will be completely stripped back and inspected to find the root cause.
