service & tune?

Unread post by GavM » January 24th, 2015, 8:50 pm

Gents,
Looking for a good mechanic to give my 97 petrol 80 series a good once over prior to a planned trip. i live in the Moorabbin area in Vic. If anyone could recommend someone i would appreciate it.
i do all my own oil and fluid changes but would like someone with the expertise to look at and do the necessary bits and pieces such as brakes, bearings, tune etc. The things that need the mechanics skills.

Thanks in anticipation :D

Any suggestions on where I can get my 79 series Tuned in Perth or East of Perth.
I'm chasing a bit more grunt, and heaps better economy because 16L/100 doesn't quite cut the mustard.

Hi all, this is my first post so please be nice.
I own a 2007 Jeep Wrangler unlimited JK CRD. The problem is it won't start. It turns over but won't fire. It spent 4 months in North Wyong and almost $6000 getting it's fuel system cleaned and injection pump replaced with an reconditioned pump. Also, for good measure the glow plugs were replaced. Still wouldn't start. They gave up on it mainly because they were too busy doing hi paying jobs like changing oil and installing diff locks. From there it got towed to Hunter Star or Hunter Prestige Motor Group at Bennets Green where it has been for 2 months. They have replaced the injector pump (again) this time with a brand new one also Starter motor (because the other one had burnt out) and replaced the hi pressure fuel lines and common rail. So far the bill is around $13000 for Hunter Star alone. Are there any good Jeep Diesel mechanics on the Central coast that don't have a 6 month waiting list as I've tried Central coast motor group in Gosford but I can't wait that long as the Rego is due in Sept.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Looking for a wheel alignment place South East side of Brisbane/Redlands area.
My experience over the past 35 years is most tyre places don't care about quality W/A's
The place I was going too I found out via on board camera they were dodgy,
12 mins from drive in to parking it & claimed to have done a "full wheel alignment"
(used a tape measure to set up toe in/out) no camber or anything else.

The geometry of the steering & suspension is a complex, & the give or take is in very small degree's not something that can be done properly on the ground with a tape measure.

Please only suggestions that you have had actual experience with, and been happy with the results, (or where to steer clear of, Bad experiences).

Thank you

I haven't used them, but I have bought spares from them before. They are a wrecker that does mechanical work too.

Robson Bro's 4WD in Welshpool have a good reputation; 3 Kalgan Rd, Welshpool WA 6106 (08) 9358 1441

The results from that search are all posts currently in this thread, altho this thread may have been around for a while - after all, it was created specifically to allow people to put up posts telling everyone else &/or anyone interested or looking about any business/workshop/mechanic that they felt was good enough to recommend - just having been here for a while doesn't necessarily mean the info isn't still good, & regardless, it's going to be somewhere to start, isn't it?! ;)

You could also try typing a few nearby suburb names into the 'search this topic' field up the top of every page in this topic/thread (it might help you find someone nearby, but the only 'Collingwood' entries I found were yours :( ) There are a heap of Melbourne suburbs mentioned, many of them recommending places that have been around for a long time now, and some that are still amongst the most highly recommended workshops you are likely to find. :waycool:

Hope you find someone. :thumb:
