Mobile Service in Barnsley

Today we travelled to Barnsley to fit a set of recharged, tested and coated Hydragas units to an MGF in a lovely location. The car was sitting very low when we arrived with no gas in the units. The job went well and was soon completed, the customer has already commented on how pleased he is with the ride now β€œSpecial thanks to Ian and Dawn for the work they did today on transforming the ride on my mgf. I can certainly recommend them. It feels like a new car – no bone crunching drives anymore 😁😁😁😁😁😁 β€œ

Mobile in Swindon

For the last couple of days we have travelled to a farm near Swindon to fit recharged units to a VP 1500, Allegro 1500 and Princess 2200 all for the same customer. The first car was a VP 1500, everything came apart as it should and the job was completed in good time. We then moved on to the Allegro 1500 and this car turned out to be extremely challenging, nearly every fixing we needed to remove was either corroded or seized including both rear radius arm shafts and one front suspension arm through bolt. We worked through it and luckily we carry spare radius arms in the van for this eventuality. We eventually got the job done and it ended up being a very long day yesterday with us being able to get on our way home at 9.30pm. We returned this morning and got on with the Princess, apart from a few seized bolts on the rear it came apart and didn’t give us much bother. The suspension is now excellent on all three cars and the customer is very pleased with our determination to get the job done and work through the issues to a successful completion


Today we fitted Hydragas units to two Metros in Huddersfield. The first one, an MG Metro went smoothly and was completed in good time. Replacing the rear units on the the Mk1 Metro was challenging with seized bolts, suspension pipes and knuckle joints to contend with but progress was made and this was also completed in good time. Both cars are so much better for it


An ADO17 Landcrab front Hydrolastic unit, rehosed and on test in our test rig at 300psi fluid pressure, the rubber spring is fully distended and the pressure is more than it would be in the “full bump” position on the car, it will be held at this pressure for an hour and then checked for the minutest of leaks. When we rehose a unit there is no hexagonal adaptor screwed into the unit as is often done when units are rehosed on a “DIY basis”. The hose ferrule goes straight to the unit so maximum flexibility of the hose is maintained. The unit has been bare metalled and if it passes the test it will be primed and painted on our specially designed jig for even and complete paint coverage. All our rehosed units are guaranteed for 2 years but it is quite possible that they could last another half a century. Hydragas and Hydrolastic Service Ltd – the quality is in the detail
