Bristol 400 all done

By Chris McPheat, Apr 23 2020 04:56PM

Today I finished off the last couple of jobs on the Bristol 400 and it's ready to go back to its owner. I converted the front sidelights to twin filament and sourced some small strobing LED blocks, it now has turn signals in addition to the trafficators, all running through the original switch. The clock is working with a new solenoid fitted, the radio has been repaired by Eric Capron at Radio Rescue and has an FM tuner as well as medium and long wave, the carburettors have been set up properly so it now idles correctly and starts easily from cold and, lastly, I've changed the engine oil & filter. It's been a real pleasure to work on such a significant vehicle, the first 400 built by Bristol Cars.
