If you’ve ever sat in traffic and watched the temperature needle go into the red you need to watch this video. Ed Hughes describes the simple checks you need to do to make sure your classic doesn’t overheat.
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 >>
Next in the process, we’ll turn on the MGB to have a look, a listen and a feel at how the engine is running. Danny and Clive teach you how to complete a warm engine check, which requires you to pay particular attention to the sounds, the smells and the vibrations emanating from the car. Learn to diagnose any abnormalities in timing and efficiency while the car is still in the garage.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 >>
