my '53 Square 4 back on the road after multi-year slumber

Postby pauldridge » Wed Jul 27, 2016 6:00 pm

I am just finishing a "sympathetic" restoration and recommissioning of my recently acquired SQ 4 MK II, which hadn't been run for at least 2 years. I've added a Morgo pump (good call, as the original I pulled off was seriously worn.

she rides beautifully.. very solid, lots of low end torque, and the tranny shifts like butter:

She looks lovely. I'm hoping to get over to Austin next year with my Ariel. Be cool to meet up.

I'm pleased to hear she is back on the road and even more pleased at your obvious delight in her.
