Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
So for the past couple of weeks I've been gearing up to fully service the engine.
- Radiator removed and checked, seems in good condition with no leaks...until I tried to force the drain plug which split the solder and created a leak. Currently getting that fixed.
- New water pump fitted along with a new belt.
- Oil drained out and then spilt on the gravel driveway...genius. Sump plug came out okay which was a result as reading the Vitesse forums a lot of people have issues with stuck plugs.
With any luck, by the end of the week the engine should be running!
Also have removed the master cylinders to sort at a later date. Initial research threw up issues as they aren't triumph as I originally thought. According to the Owners club main page they're probably Cortina. I'll deal with that when the engine is running.
Watch this space for a video soon *fingers crossed*.
