That a vehicle born in the late 1950s and ending production in 1979 would still be owned and driven today was way beyond the expectations of the original manufacturer. Today’s Midget and Sprite owner needs to be aware of the special problems that can emerge through continued use. Just how do you look after and maintain a vehicle that was built last century?
This book helps you identify all the things you need to be aware of to avoid trouble. The shortcomings, the odd funny noise, that little something that just does not seem quite right ... here, we sort them out. The book systematically describes all the main components of the Midget/Sprite, and details what can go wrong with each. Being able to identify simple warning signs can keep you ahead of a big repair bill – and possibly save you from being stranded at the roadside.
A note from the Bugeyeguy: This is my favorite Sprite Book. Here’s why… people always ask me for maintenance tips and for diagnostic information and this book is loaded with both. You will get deep understanding of the various systems of your car, and even if you never get your hands dirty, reading this text will help you understand what is going on behind the scenes in your little British car. The book covers the entire Sprite and Midget range, and since so many Bugeyes include parts from later Sprites, all of what is featured is completely Bugeye relevant.
