Classic cars have very different servicing needs to their modern counterparts There are some things where there is no substitute for experience, we frequently work adjusting and balancing carburettors and testing and setting timing and points. Rest assured we have all the necessary imperial & specialist carburettor tooling necessary to work on your vehicle.
The classic car service is bespoke, however commonly includes:
Carburettor adjustment and balancing
Adjustment of points & ignition timing
Cleaning and re-gapping of spark plugs
An oil change using low detergent mineral oils with ZDDP (ZincDialkylDithiophosphate)
Inspection of the suspension, brakes and steering box
Topping up the cooling system with Inorganic Additive Technology (IAT) products with additional corrosion inhibitors when we service your vehicle (most classic cars could be damaged by modern OAT antifreeze)
The application of anti corrosion wax & greases to vulnerable parts.
Where new parts are not available, fortunately we can clean, repair & recondition most original parts to prolong their useful life, enabling you to keep your classic car where it belongs - on the road being driven and enjoyed
