Wheeler Dealers Triumph Spitfire Part 2/5

" There are still plenty of jobs to do to a little classic Spitfire. We've got a noisy diff in the rear, the shock absorbers, and let's not forget the engine. The head is now back from the engineers. Now, it's got to be reinstalled. And that is all what we've done before I can hopefully sell it on for a profit." " Mike was complaining about, it's kind of really soggy back end, and this car has got a really simple suspension. This has got 1 leaf spring that goes from one side to the other. Essentially, there's a loads of, sort of bars of metals, sprung metal, held together with bolts. There's really very little that can be wrong with that. The only thing they can be, probably, is the shock absorbers. Now, what you're normally looking for is 1½ bounces when you're gonna give it some. So let's have a look. We'll, it's kind of really going on and on and on. So I think, basically, it's very, very fair to say that the shock absorbers are gone on this vehicle. It's gonna be very easy thing to take off. What to do is get the car up on the ramp and take the wheel off. Now, a problem that will come across in a minute is basically these shock absorbers and the tension because it's actually supporting some of the weight of the outside of this axle, this wheel basically. So, what I'm gonna have to do is get a trolley jackhammer here just to take a little bit of the strain, because if it gets too much pressure and that's gonna get a little bit dangerous. Now, the next thing is to try and get this shock off. There you go. Okay. So, whereas offending article looking pretty ropey, pretty unpleasant, especially when you compare it to the new one, because I've also got some new rubber mounts to go in there as well. So it should take away all of that horrible squidginess that Mike was talking about. It's a little bit fiddly but then I've got really big hands. So what do I expect? It's nice to find a simple job like this on the car because it's cheap, simple; it is easy to do." Bookmark this page:redditStumbleUponFacebookdel.icio.usdigg Toggle Beta Player

" Hey! Look at this. Well done [unk]." " As you can see, I delicately squeezed myself out of the car. Ed! Look what I've bought. I bought a spitfire." " It's the Tomy toys of smallest cars. This is the beginner's sports car. If anyone can work on it, you can, sunshine. I would reckon." " Well, it's pretty cool, but I am worried a little bit 'cause they're quite renowned for rust. What tends to happen is they rust away and then you saw a fracture and they've fallen off. So," " Don't you think I've done my checks, Edward?" " Have you looked"
