The owner of this fabulous 1953 Riley came to Bridge Classic Cars fearing the worst. The thermostat was showing severe overheating, often connected to a blown head gasket, which can be a huge expense.
Luckily, the specialist technicians in our workshop quickly diagnosed the fault. “It was actually just the thermostat that was stuck,” explains our workshop manager John. “Because of this the engine wasn’t able to cool, causing it to overheat.”
After a replacement thermostat and some nifty mechanics, the team had the Riley back up and running again in no time, much to the relief of her owner who could drive her away after just a few days.
We just love a good news story here!
