The 1953 Ford Transit van that arrived with us yesterday has spent the morning with our expert classic car technician Pete.
After five years of back and forth trips to mechanics, this unique Taunus Transit still wouldn’t fire up.
But, after a thorough diagnosis and via process of elimination, the talented team here at Bridge have solved the mystery.
“The magic eye was not fitted correctly on the distributor,” explained Pete. “It needed pushing down further so the rotor arm could be fitted correctly. The firing order was also wrong, so we’ve sorted that”.
Pete and Tamas have since done several workshop tests, including taking her out for a test run and she’s now driving well. There’s only a few more final checks to make before we can give her the all clear, but what a amazing turnaround – great work team!
