Engine Rebuilding

Engine rebuildingOur experience in engine building and design is very extensive, Julian for instance, has spent the last 40 years of his life obsessing about engines, and over the last 20 years has designed improvements for almost every part of the Lagonda 4.5 Litre engine and we can honestly say that over half of the 4.5 Litre Meadows based engines running today have benefitted by these improvements. As well as the Meadows engine we have experience in all Lagonda’s and pre-war  Bentleys, both WO and Derby, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Delage, Delahaye, Riley, ERA, Mercedes Benz, Cord, Fiat, Lancia, HRG, HWM, Alta, Ford, Alvis and many many more.  We research metallurgy, Chemistry, Exhaust system characteristics, Supercharging  and every detailed part of the combustion process in order to optimize your engine and give you the absolute best “bang for your buck” Every engine is extensively tested prior to returning it to you so that you can immediately enjoy it with no running in to worry about.  
If you have a project that you would like to discuss, just contact us, we are happy to hear from you.


HCS has now joined forces with Formhalls Vintage Engineering in England and plans are in progress to build up both companies to monopolise on the fantastic skills now available due to this merger. Formhalls are the worlds leading White Metal Bearing specialist and our plans are to make their services available to the wider market and bring down lead times as much as possible, while keeping quality at the top as it has always been.

The best bit is that continental customers will now not need to travell over to England to have this work done. Drop it off here and we will do it for you.
