Project Freida recommences

After passing from Jake’s ownership to mine back in the mists of time, Freida had been mothballed awaiting a suitable juncture at which to continue her restoration. This occurred in late 2020 when she was trailered to the Brundall workshop. Below is the first installation of a YouTube mini-series charting the ongoing works.

I’m so Dizzy!

Today I aquired the long awaited casting which sits inbetween the distributor and the engine block on Freida the Ferguson.

It came with half of an old original lucas distributor which I hastely removed to be replaced with the Duccellier which I took off my Land Rover.

I wire wheeled the casting up to remove decades of paint and grime, I then gave the inside a smear of grease and fitted the Duccellier  in it.

I’ll wait for a dry day before I fit it to Freida along with all the other ignition parts and give her a good static timing session.
