[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We are now fine tuning and running up our Jensen 541S engine. The engine has been removed and detailed but has not been rebuilt.

We carried out various tests when we original received the car and with all running and pressures how you would expect we made the decision, alongside the customer, to leave the engine in one piece.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]However, now we are running her up once again for fine tuning, Ady has discovered a lot of wear in the original rocker shaft.

Due the fact that these shafts are almost impossible to find Ady has re-produced the shaft and fitted with brand new fingers supplied to us from AH Spares.

You can see the wear in the original rocker shaft here.
