Classic-worm-steering-box-oil penrite semi fluid grease

This week was the autumn equinox.  Summer may  now be over but we can still look forward to some lovely dry bright motoring weather.  Autumn is possibly our favourite time of year.  A 1934 RP Austin 7 Saloon went back to its owner  – we’ve rebuilt the rear axle and overhauled the brakes.  We used Millers Oils EP140 in the rear axle. A 1963 TR4 passed its MOT – over the past eight months we’ve repaired, restored and refinished the bodywork and rebuilt the carburettors.  Not forgetting fresh antifreeze solution in the cooling system.  A 1933 Alvis came in for an Annual Safety Check, the owner is no longer required to take it for an MOT.

Our stock of Penrite semi fluid grease has almost run out following a mention in the October Classic Cars magazine in an editorial about what to put in the steering box of a 1972 Alfa Romeo Spider S2.  Russ Smith, Classic Cars, who purchased the Penrite product from us and has used it in the Alfa steering box, tells me ‘the fluid seems to be staying put and steering feel has been vastly improved’.  We currently have in stock two products for classic and vintage steering boxes – Penrite Semi Fluid Grease and Millers Oils Worm Steering Box Oil.  Take a look at our on line shop.

£5.00 carriage for quantities from 7 to 20 litres.

Happy motoring
