I decided to try out Rising Sun Automotive on S Lamar for a sticking throttle issue I was having with my 60. I have been going to Bearden Automotive for the last few things I have had a mechanic do, but from the feel of it, it didnt seem like they wanted to work on the carb. In the past I have used B&B Muffler for carburetor issues, but they have really gotten on my nerves the last times I have had to deal with them. Anyways, I had a great experience with Jim at Rising Sun. He said they turn away anything older than 2000, but still love to work on the old Cruisers. They were very prompt in getting back a diagnosis (worn out throttle linkage) and had a new one welded in with a carb adjustment and some engine bay cleanup included at no extra cost.
agreed I am out on B&B after an outrageous quote to repair AC on my DD. Guys at Rising Sun are cool and do good work.
On another note there has been a 110 Defender at B&B on and off for the last couple of months. Owner must be singled handedly paying the shops property taxes with that rig. Land Rover problems I guess
