Engine and mechanical upgrades...

Leon Betts

When most people think of Ol' School Garage they generally think of classic car sales or restorations. However, you should also think 'upgrades'...especially engine and mechanical upgrades.

Our Fab Shop team is headed up by Craig 'Jackie' Johnston. Jackie is both a qualified engine builder and welder/fabricator. So you can leave your classic with Ol' School Garage knowing it is in good hands?

Jackie is supported by a very experienced team comprising Mark, our old old school mechanic (no that's not a typo); Roland our panel beater and rust repair guru; sheet metal 'whisperer' Adam; and Trent, our apprentice welder/fabricator. In reality, as is required in a small team, everyone is multi-skilled (i.e. 'jack of all trade').

Here are some photos of a typical upgrade job that came in last week. The owner of this '53 F100 was concerned about his ignition and cooling systems. So Jackie and Adam set about installing a full MSD ignition system, new radiator with thermo fans and a trans cooler. Procurement, installation, wiring, plumbing and final test and tune all achieved within the week so the owner didn't miss his week-end cruise.

Cheers Leon
