Well those that know about my Humber Scout and the issues it had after its 1st restoration overseas... is almost finished from its new restoration!!!! close to 2 years later.... Found tons of issues wrong with the first restoration (fuel, mechanical and electrical) and wanted to make correct bins and interior parts..plus had to source parts from overseas and find the correct manuals.
After it arrived..Radiator fluid was leaking, thought I had a bad block, head was never honed and was uneven, fixed that, but most of the head bolts were stripped and loose and you couldn't torque the head down good enough, so leaked bad...
Engine is back from the shop with balanced crank shaft and an internal steam cleaning, new pistons and rings, gaskets etc. The interior goodies that were missing for the CES kit and engine compartment equipment has been located or painstakenly reproduced.
