Kenward Precision is delighted to have been invited to manufacture a new set of gears for a 1912 Hispano Suiza Alfonso car which is undergoing restoration.
The gears will be reverse engineered from the originals supplied, (right), but the new ones will be finely ground to ensure that they operate as quietly as possible.
The work will involve turning the blanks, slotting some, spark eroding some, cutting the gears, case hardening and final grinding.
This car was named after King Alfonso XIII of Spain who liked it so much that, at one point, he had 30!
