Vintage and Classic Engines

Vintage and classic engines can present a problem to some people but at Midland classic Restorations we have the experience to find a solution whatever the age of the engine. With older engines parts can be a problem and may need to be manufactured from scratch  or modified from similar parts. we can source and have made anything needed.

White metal bearings are common in early engines, and if bearing housings are worn it can be tempting to simply add a thick white metal bearing,  this will normally cause the bearing to break up early in its life, the correct method is to refurbish the bearing housing first and then add the correct depth of white metal.

With some engines it is possible to replace white metal bearings with modern shells, this needs careful selection of parts and accurate machining another service we can provide to our customers.
