Any excuse to play with an old car goes. So we were happy to help the owner of this Morris J2 van with some recommissioning work after some years of inactivity.
The front brakes received new brake shoes and all the hydraulic fluids were changed for new.
There was also a new exhaust gasket to be fitted to the head and numerous other small things. After filling the float bowl on the old Solex carburator and a change of battery the engine ran fine.
Meanwhile this Austin Ten Sherborne was picked up by a new owner so we had more room to work on the J2.
After all this hard work the car was awarded a clean roadworthiness certificate and we could enjoy a short test run and celebrate our success.
Here's a video of our test run:
