Austin 7 Gordon England


The Austin has been treated to a well-earned bit of fettling in preparation for the VSCC Lakeland Trial in November. The leaky radiator core has been sent to Hereford Radiators ( to be repaired and pressure tested, and the front axle has been removed and overhauled, including some relined brake shoes, (Copper rivets are not the best of friction materials!) which Jeremy spent a lunchtime sorting out. Other issues, such as a lack of dynamo charge, plus a few other minor mechanical deficiencies need attention.
