At Texoma Classics, we understand the importance of maintaining the safety and performance of classic vehicles like the 1979 Lincoln Mark V. One of the key components of a vehicle’s safety and performance is its braking system.

Recently, we provided brake inspection services for a classic vehicle by removing the tires to get a good look at the brakes. Our team of experts provided comprehensive brake inspection services to ensure that the braking system was functioning correctly and to identify any necessary repairs or upgrades.

Brake inspections are an essential part of vehicle maintenance, especially for classic cars. Over time, brake components can deteriorate and become less effective, putting the driver and passengers at risk. Regular brake inspections can help identify and address any issues before they become a safety concern.

Changing the brakes is an essential part of restoring a vehicle’s safety and performance. The braking system is one of the most important systems in a vehicle, responsible for slowing down and stopping the vehicle safely and efficiently. Over time, the brakes can become worn or damaged, which can lead to reduced stopping power and even brake failure. At Texoma Classics, we take great care when changing the brakes, inspecting all of the associated components to ensure that they are in good working order. This can include the brake pads, rotors, calipers, and brake lines. We also use high-quality parts to ensure that the new brakes are reliable and long-lasting. Once the new brakes are installed, we test them thoroughly to make sure that they are functioning correctly and that there are no issues with brake fade or other problems. We also ensure that the brake pedal feels firm and that the vehicle stops smoothly and safely. At Texoma Classics, we understand the importance of a well-functioning braking system, and we take pride in our ability to deliver high-quality brake services that you can count on.

Reinstalling the tires is a crucial step in the restoration process, as the tires are responsible for providing traction and stability to the vehicle. Tires that are worn, damaged, or improperly installed can affect the vehicle’s handling, fuel efficiency, and overall safety.

The heater core is a vital component of a vehicle’s heating system, responsible for generating heat that is used to warm the interior of the vehicle. When the heater core has leaks, it can cause a number of problems, including reduced heat output, a strong smell of coolant inside the cabin, and in some cases, even engine overheating. Detecting and fixing a leak in the heater core is essential to keep your vehicle’s heating system functioning correctly. At Texoma Classics, we use advanced leak detection techniques to identify leaks in the heater core quickly and accurately. Once the leaks are detected, we carefully remove the damaged heater core and replace it with a high-quality new one. We also inspect all the other components of the heating system, including the heater hoses, radiator, and thermostat, to ensure that there are no other leaks or issues that could cause problems down the road. At the end of the restoration process, we test the heating system to ensure that it is working correctly and that there are no leaks or other issues. At Texoma Classics, we understand the importance of a well-functioning heating system, and we take pride in our ability to deliver high-quality results every time.

Identifying and fixing engine and transmission leaks is an important part of restoring a vehicle’s performance and reliability. Leaks can occur for a variety of reasons, including worn or damaged gaskets, seals, or hoses. At Texoma Classics, we use advanced diagnostic equipment and techniques to locate any leaks in the engine and transmission. Once we have identified the source of the leak, we carefully inspect the associated components to determine the best course of action. This can involve replacing gaskets or seals, repairing or replacing hoses, or even rebuilding the engine or transmission if necessary. Our technicians take great care to ensure that all of the associated components are inspected and repaired or replaced as needed, to ensure that the leak is fixed and that the engine and transmission are functioning correctly. We also test the engine and transmission to ensure that there are no other leaks or issues that could cause problems down the road. At Texoma Classics, we understand the importance of a well-functioning engine and transmission, and we take pride in our ability to deliver high-quality leak detection and repair services that you can count on.
