Guy Loveridge prob­lem solves in Italy

Practical Classics (UK) - - CLASSIC WORLD -

When you com­mit to an event like the Mille Miglia, there seems to be lit­tle to do bar turn up and do the job… but the trip still proved the value of know­ing your span­ners.

Picture the scene… day two and the run to Rome. The heat was over­whelm­ing and we were us­ing five litres of wa­ter ev­ery 40 miles. The fault? The rod run­ning from the back of the dy­namo to the wa­ter pump was de­tached and leak­ing. Game Over? For a few mo­ments it looked like it was. Then, us­ing a ca­ble tie, we pulled the drive and pump back into con­tact. The Nash fired up, the pump drive span and it held! We poured more wa­ter in and struck

off into Rome. Come Sun­day, the wa­ter loss was neg­li­gi­ble.

Proof that clas­sic prob­lem solv­ing can be ex­actly the same, what­ever the car!
