Although we had some rain a few days ago, Sunday was sunny and dry, so we had no trouble driving all the way with the roof down to the late summer event of the Austin Club Holland. There were mostly Austins of the Ten type, but there was a nice Van and two Twelves. One […]

Austin Ten Conway oil change and brake service

Austin Ten Conway oil change and brake service

It seemed the brakes on the Ten needed cleaning and adjustment. While up on the ramp I cleaned up the chassis a bit too after an oil change and a dirty session with the grease gun.  Got a new top hose too. This seems to be a rather heavy duty item. I thought it didn’t […]
