Mauro has been refurbishing the front set up of the Bristol and applying new grease onto the front wheel bearings. The break disks got changed as well, and the sump gasket was leaking oil so he’s been fitting a new one.
The rocker cover gaskets have also been replaced due to an oil leak.
Ady, Bridge Classic Cars’ engine specialist has begun servicing this lovely Bristol 411. The first thing we’ve noticed is the incorrect alignment of the alternator belt. As you can see in the first image, the belt should align perfectly with the pulley. Instead, the alternator is sitting slightly too far forward which could cause uneven wear to the belt.
In our restoration workshop this week is our lovely Bristol 411.
The Bristol 411 was built in Britian between 1989 to 1976 by Bristol Cars. The 411 is a luxurious vehicle with a good amount of power produced form its 6.3l V8 engine.
This wonderful Bristol 411 is in with us for a full service and MOT.
