1987 Daimler Double Six

Run Free – Diagnosing a Running Issue With A 1987 Daimler Double Six.

Classic cars all have the little foibles. This has become more apparent with this 1987 Daimler Double Six we have with us at Bridge Classic Cars to begin an assessment on some rust issues throughout its charming blue paintwork along with several other sympathetic restoration requests.

Dave, our in-house master technician has been trying to get to the bottom of the running issue that we have found with this particular car. The first port of call for Dave was to check the engine was breathing as it should be. On inspection, he found the driver’s intake has no suction through the filter.

After the removal of the airbox, he could feel the suction through to the throttle body. Next in line was to check the spark plugs, no easy feat on one of these with their mechanical fuel injection and the engine bay being a mass of vacuum pipes and necessary parts to run the system.

Dave is continuing to look deeper into the issue to ensure that once all the work has been completed, it can be happily enjoyed by its very lucky owner.
