In preparation for our 1979 Triumph Spitfire to be delivered to its new owner (who won it through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions), Jonn has been conducting a pre-delivery inspection and road test.

Here are his notes:

Finish pdi and carry out road test. Choke not picking revs up enough when operated. Adjust quadrant bolts on throttle spindle and retry, ok. Drives ok when warmed up properly. Throttle pedal a bit stiff again like before. Remove cable and lubricate. Refit and test, better. Just waiting for spare tyre yo be fitted to spare wheel and the ready to go.

Jonn also stripped and adjusted the nearside front wheel bearing before refitting the wheel and torquing it to spec.
