British Car Mechanic - Triumph - Nar Farmington Hills

Postby Mark_Silverberg » Sat Jul 19, 2014 9:24 am

Want to assist my neighbor in fixing the clutch in his TR3. Was hopping to get a recommendation for a mechanic near Farmington Hills. This is not a difficult job - it will probably require just the replacement of a master cylinder or slave cylinder (or perhaps both).

I could take on the job (replaced the brake master cylinder a few years ago). I just can't seem to find the time.

This does not have to be a formal repair facility - an experienced individual would be fine.

Mark,
http://www.mcelroyauto.com/

is owned by an old high school buddy of mine, ( super nice laid back guy )
and Jim Kidd ( an active Waterford crew chief ) works for him .

Good old school auto service, ( no frilly waiting room with wi-fi etc )


They are at ten and orchard lake.

If they cannot help you and your friend, chances are good they can refer you to somebody.

Does the car owner have the parts he may need? Hopefully it's just a master or slave cylinder. If so, maybe we can help ... If it needs a complete clutch replacement we won't have the time. As of Friday our work schedule for this week is already pretty much full until Thursday (which is when my grandson and I will be leaving town for the Indy Super Weekend) so we'll need to know ASAP if and when we might see the car.

These guys are in Farmington Hills and as far as I know only sell parts. But....I imagine they are very well connected to British car repair experts.

If non of the above pan out you could try Jeff Jones at Automotive Techniques. Specializes more in the German Market, but he's a good guy, might be able to help.

Just west of Haggerty on Grand River.. http://www.automotivetechniques.net/
