The Investigation Begins

Marketing Manager - Bridge Classic Cars

Classic car technician Steve recently began his investigation on our 1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta TI. During his work, he found a few issues that will need to be resolved while our Alfa is here with us at the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.

One of the first things that Steve noted in his investigation was that the brake cylinders were corroded and leaking which has caused the brake shoes to become contaminated with brake fluid.

Another issue discovered during Steve’s initial investigation was that the nearside rear drive shaft seal was leaking too. This was also causing contamination of the brake shoes.

The brake master cylinder seals of our Alfa Romeo Giulietta TI are leaking and the top radiator hose is cracked while the bottom hose is rubbing on the steering box.

In addition to the issues found with the brakes and seals, Steve also noted that both front chassis outriggers are corroded and in need of attention. Additionally, there appear to be several oil leaks that need to be cleaned up to allow Steve to conduct a more thorough investigation into where they might be coming from.

Our Alfa Romeo Giulietta TI has only been with us for a short while but Steve was very keen to start work on it as soon as possible. Although several issues were found during his work, it doesn’t take away from the fact that this is a great-looking classic car and, once all the work is complete, the owner will have their car returned to them in full working order.
