Work Carried Out
Having been standing in storage for ten years, the E-Type was brought to EMGC to get it running again and it preparing for use on the road. The first job was the sort out the fuel system.
The fuel tank was removed and cleaned out of old fuel and dirt. The carburettors were also removed, striped and overhauled. The fuel pump and all fuel lines were replaced.
The cooling system was next to be overhauled. The radiator was re-cored and an up-rated electric cooling fan with all new electrics, relays and a manual override. The thermostat, hoses and static cooling pipes were all replaced. Evans waterless coolant was used for its superior cooling performance.
The braking system, front suspension and the steering were all striped, inspected and rebuilt with new parts where required.
The E-Types bonnet was also in need of some attention and it was removed, stripped, repaired and repainted before refitting.
The final step on its journal back to the road was a full service and MOT.
