Overhauling the E-Type Carbs

Somewhat of a mobile task for Ady this week. Fuel was leaking from our 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 V12. Ady visited the car to see what, if anything, could be done with the car in it’s current location. The carbs needed our attention so we brought them back to the workshops to be overhauled. New gaskets, float valve and diaphragms were fitted and now we are ready to refit back to the car.

Francis Barnett Up And Running

Our 1953 Francis Barnett Rigid Body Trials motorbike was having some issues starting, so we had John take a look who quickly diagnosed the issue as dirt and debris getting caught in the carburettor.

1971 Range Rover Carburettor Service

Ady, Bridge Classic Cars’ engine specialist has serviced and cleaned up the leaking carburettors in our 1971 Range Rover. He has replaced the seals and gaskets and re-installed into the vehicle. This has massively improved the engines running.

Ady has noticed a slight radiator leak so this will be investigated further by our good friends and radiator experts, Shelldrake and Wells in Ipswich. This is the final task to complete before the vehicle is running beautifully once more. Great work, Ady!
