In 2015, we sold the car to another long term customer, this time in Lincolnshire. We stripped and cleaned the carb, cleaned the fuel lines, replaced the fuel tap and carried out a service. Once the Morris began to get use, a differential issue came to light and we removed the rear axle and diff and at a cost of over £1000 has it overhauled.
