anyone can claim to be a Rochester specialist", especially in a foreign country with foreign cars. have you checked his references ? I don't want to pay specialist rates for the yob/pfy to learn on the jobI know right? I think he might be the only one in the UK. He emailed yesterday to confirm the carb number and to assure me he was happy with dealing with the computer carb. I've a feeling this could be an expensive solution, especially with shipping the car down there, but I'd rather spend more and get it done right.
