SERVICING | WELDING | MECHANICAL REPAIRS
THE BRIEF

The car needs to pass its M.O.T. please service the vehicle, fault-find why the rev counter doesn’t work and valet the car.

WHAT WE DID

We found out that the reason the servo was not working was because someone had bypassed it due to the cylinder seals requiring replacement, we replaced all of the wheel cylinders and replaced the shoes and pads. The axle oil seals were leaking oil out of the axles, so we removed the hub bearings and replaced the seals. The sump gasket was badly leaking, removed sump gasket and replaced seals. The accelerator pump was not working, stripped and cleaned the carburettor and fitted repair kit which included accelerator pump diaphragm. The overdrive wasn’t working, we found the connections to the switch were corroded therefore we replaced the terminals. Replaced tyres and door rubbers. Thoroughly cleaned the interior. Welded up a small hole in the near side door seal and then sent to the paint shop for a full respray following the M.O.T.
