Need a good diesel mechanic

Hey guys,

Does anybody out there know of a good reputable and in-expensive shop in the Charleston/Huntington WV area that I can take my 7.3 psd to? I have fuel in my coolant overflow tank and I'm going to put my $$ on a bad injector cup. I need to get in in ASAP! Thanks!

Stu

Hey guys, thanks for the welcome, good to be on board.

Rod, thanks for the info on the mechanic. I actually found a guy at Bert Wolff who's a cousin of a cousin of a cousin of mine (only in WV, Great to be back!) that's going to change all 8 of my injector tubes for $400. He can't touch my truck for 2 weeks, but for 1/4 of what the dealer will charge, I guess I'll settle.

Joe, I am an AGE Ranger! DINSTAAR...You? I was stationed at Luke, Spangdahlem Germany, Nellis, and Moody. Just got out after 11 years and moved back to West-by-God. I ran into another retired Ranger last month in Logan, retired in '94, name is Roger Ramey

LOL, nope...I was Air Transportation and in Recruiting. My son, Matthew was an Age Dude....he spent his time at Scott. Then he crosstrained and is a gunner on 53's at Hurlburt. As a matter of fact he should be leaving the sand just about right now....his 5th deployment.

Welcome back Pal!

An old AGE buddy of mine cross trained and is as Engineer at Hurby. Matt Collins. I'm sure your son knows him. I was with the HH-60 Helicopters at Moody

I bet you'll think twice before you let your Blockie out again while she's in heat! I'm still on your case about that issue.
