Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
Started getting Daisy in shape for the coming year. found the ignition switch fault, the weight of the keys being in the steering lock caused the ignition to cut off if you accelerated to quickly. So decided to bin the lot, steering lock and all. Going to wire in a simple key switch. Already got a kill switch and battery cut off fitted.
Found the bad vibration at 67 mph + rear UJ is knackered, this as also done for the diff seal and rear gearbox seal. thank goodness I don't have to lay in the damp and cold outside anymore to do these jobs.
Did a full check on the chassis, no rot found, just needs a good clean and fresh coat of paint. A few mod's needed to the fuel line and brake line under the chassis, they need re-routing.
Up front replacing the top wishbone bushes, and replacing the brake hoses + fitting brake pipes from the caliper to a bracket yet to be made.
12 weeks to the first big run out to the Yorkshire Dales with the rest of the Norther Duttoneers.
