Here’s Graham’s pride and joy, finally restored and on the road. Just received it’s second warrant!. A 1930 Model A Pickup Truck that was originally a Post and Telegraph lines vehicle in the Blenheim/Marlborough area. It still has the original government number on a plaque on the floorboards. Model T, recently in the workshop for an overhaul that we fitted with the new type of nylon timing gear. Very strong and very quiet.

Another picture of the same model T motor, showing the after-market conrods that we fitted. These conrods are a quality item, made in the USA and are fitted with replaceable shell bearings and high tensile big end bolts.

This is a picture of the 1934 V12 Lincoln K series motor that we completely rebuilt recently. This is a very quiet and smooth motor. It was a bit of a challenge to completely rebuild. We had to convert the rods to different bearing shells and bore the mains out to take replaceable bearing shells. All the roller cam followers were rebuilt with new parts. It now runs very sweetly and the owner is delighted with the finished job.

This is a 1950s AJS Motorcycle that's recently been restored. We have
completely rebuilt the motor and the customer has finished the restoration
to an extremely high standard.

Three sets of Peerless conrods in the process of being made for an overseas
customer. These were made from billet steel bar here in NZ. We now have
to finally resize them, fit the remtalled shells and bore to suit the
crankshafts.

As with the previous motor, the Austin Princess has had a complete overhaul and conversion to unleaded fuel in our workshop and as has also happened with the above motor the gearbox is currently in our workshop being overhauled. Parts for these motors were readily available through our network of suppliers both here and overseas but should there have been a problem we can manufacture “hard to get” parts or adapt parts to suit.
