The 1954 MG TF is in the hands of our in-house restoration workshop here at Bridge Classic Cars.

As part of the inspection on the car, Jon (our technician) found that the rocker cover gasket had begun to weep due to a break in the gasket material allowing oil to be pushed out the gap in the gasket. Whilst under the bonnet of the classic sports car, Jon also noted that there was excessive play in the steering.

On further inspection, he found that the bushes in the steering joint weren’t in the best shape. So, after ordering replacements for the steering and the rocker cover, Jon set to work getting all the new pieces fitted under the bonnet of the car.
