Our lovely little 1971 Triumph Spitfire is back with us to repair various leaks she’s developed over the last few months.

Her owner Mary has been bringing her jolly Spitfire to us for years, and we just love keeping her in tip top condition.

This time around, our expert classic car technicians had to completely remove the engine to locate several oil leaks.

Pete, one of our specialists, tells us about the work; “There were leaks from the engine and gearbox” he explains “it turned out a baring had gone in the alternator so we’ve replaced it.”

There’s still some further investigation to do on some strange noises coming from the engine. We’ll keep you posted with our findings…
