1988 Jaguar XJS Convertible in for a service

Arriving earlier this week, our beautiful 1988 Jaguar XJS Convertible is in with us for a general check over underneath but more importantly it’s service is due.

The car has been undersealed so the owner is interested to see the integrity of the sealant and whether any additional work is required.

The car will also undergo a full service with an overhaul of the brake fluid too.

Morgan 4/4 Arrival

This 1992 Morgan 4/4 has come in for a service and some amends such as a new exhaust, brakes to be checked, drain oil out of the differential, lubricate parts and address a bottom hose leak.

Diagnosed Dodgy Distributer

Scott has taken a look at our 1971 MG Midget. He began by investigating the poor running issue, which he identified as being a dodgy distributor cap. After finding a cap off another car to try, Scott got it running. By played with timing and fuel mixture, Scott managed to get the MG started so that it was running nice and all seems well now. He then started doing a general check over as the customer has told us that it has sat for a while. Scott found that the diff-fill plug was really damaged and hard to remove so he had to weld a bar to it to remove and check the oil.

Welcome Back Old Friend

We’ve welcomed back this lovely 1960 MG A for a service. We originally restored this stunning classic and were delighted to hear how happy Mike is with his beloved motor when he dropped it off with us this morning.

We’ve begun by draining the oil out of the engine to replace it as this is advised to do either once a year or every 6000 miles. This is important to do as when the oil has circulated around the engine numerous times, it can collect metal pollutants and lose its effectiveness.
