The rally season is upon us so now is the ideal time
to have your Model T checked over and serviced at our workshop
to ensure it is both safe and mechanically ready for the miles you
will be covering during the coming year.

Engine oil is then drained and re-filled with Morris Golden Film

Rear axle oil level is checked and if necessary topped up using
Morris 250wt oil (equivalent to the original 600w) which again is
