More often than not, an electrical issue on a classic car is as simple as adjusting a fuse or correcting a faulty wire. For those times when it’s just a bit more complicated, Ed teaches you how to read a circuit diagram on your classic car to discover where the faulty component might be in your car’s system.
In our first class, Danny and Clive dig into the engine bay to inspect a number of components prior to starting the engine. Cold engine checks are recommended for taking a closer look at hoses and other smaller parts of the engine that easily show damage and wear by shining a light. Before moving on to the next class, make sure you’ve inspected each of the components seen in this video.Watch Now >>
In the final step of the engine decoking process, you’ll learn to reassemble the head, replace a new gasket, and remount the cleaned and decoked components onto the engine block. Ed walks you step by step through the finishing methods needed to put the cylinder head back together and make sure everything is properly affixed and operational.Watch Now >>
Now that we’ve checked the components in our MGB’s engine bay, it’s time to prop the car up and look under it’s belly at the front end. Danny and Matt take a look at everything on the front of the car, from the suspension to the steering column and even some of the body work, checking to see that all parts are undamaged and in working order.Watch Now >>
In the previous class, Ed showed you how to clean the valves and prepare them for reinsertion into the head. Now, you’ll learn how to lap in the valves using grinding paste and then decoke the engine in order to increase its efficiency and ensure top-notch engine performance for another several thousand miles. Ed introduces the tools you need to complete this process and then shows you how to use them.Watch Now >>
