Looks nice ....

but does the service history show any mechanical recommissioning such as new brake pipes engine mounts anti roll bar bushes, radiator pipes fan belts i.e anything that is rubber should be given a good look at and generally replaced (esp brake pipes). I would spend out on all the main rubbery bits then you know you have a sound car in the brakes, suspension and engine and carb mountings departments.

Shock absorbers do not need replacing unless they show signs of leaking or do not damp when bounced on the front or rear end, except maybe if you wanted a firmer ride from say Konis.

Re vacuum hose there are not may hoses around that can take vacuum. Ordinary hoses will collapse over time.

What is the problem with the throttle valve bearings? I assume you have the 42 Solex's fitted? Is the car high mileage ? These carbs can only really be refurbished in the throttle spindle area by sending away to a specialist (in Italy).

These Sports can go for a long time if the above is adhered to.

I would change the antifreeze too when changing the hoses and would recommend silicon classic look ones.

Hope this helps and sorry you are not more local to me.

Tim,

Thanks for your comments, yes all the brake pipes are newish (end '13), radiator pipe is new, most other rubber parts have been replaced, leads, plugs, filters all look new, the hoses mentioned are new but look naff, don't know what type of carbs are fitted but on test it was a little bit plucky until warm and then seemed to run rich?

The car has done 81,000km, so 51,000 miles which is not bad in 44 years.

Frank/Andy,

You should have seen the state of the garage (and the footwear) on Sunday morning before the big clean & the four estate car trips to the tip!

David,

Yes Adrian Flux have so far returned the most competitive quote and I believe a phone call to them will reduce the quote further still so thanks for that.

Regards all,

Paul.

Thats sounds excellent! Just a tune up then! Low mileage Solexes are excellent carbs are respond well to a rebuild to clean out any muck and then tune quite easily.

Paul,
It looks just great and working on it yourself will give you great satisfaction of a job well done, even the simple things.
I insure "Fay" with Hagertys, very good ,very reasonable, they are enthusiasts and don't insure moderns, while being aimed at Classics.

You have a nice sized garage there. Always been a dream of mine to have a garage just big enough to have space all around the car to take wheels off etc. Not happened so far and I don't expect it too any time soon. That makes a big difference because you can take your time working on it and not have to worry about getting it back together to get it back inside before rain comes etc. Get yourself a soft breathable cover too to keep the garage dust off.

Try Omicron for carb rebushing, they have done some for me very well.

Agreed value on mine is 25,000.   Adrian Fluz (who use Hagerty's) are perfectly happy with that and mine is not as shiny as yours!

The trouble with a nice large garage is resisting the temptation to fill it with spares.

It's amazing how much space you can find in a garage (or shed) when you have an incentive to do so!
