Looking for a good mechanic Hunter/ Newcastle area

Postby 77lancer » Sun Jun 11, 2017 8:36 pm

Hey everyone,
i just got another La lancer.....finally.
I have just moved to the Hunter Valley NSW and need a mechanic.
The lancer i bought has a 1.8l turbo engine 4g32. It has been sitting for 20 years so needs some work to get it going again.
Any help would be appreciated. I can travel to sydney if i need too.

I am in Maitland and sadly all of the "old school" mechanics have long retired. Probably the best guy in this area for older cars would be Skinners Mechanical Repairs @ Woodbury. I recently had him put a clutch in my Sigma.
Another guy that used to have a modified Lancer is Don Redman @ East Maitland. He is semi-retired , but just mention the word "Lancer" and he may be interested. His mobile is 0438 347 401 . Just tell him that Barry with the white Sigma GN wagon said to give him a call, not that it will probably help Lol.

But then I guess it depends on where you live. The Hunter Valley is a big area.

Any chance you could post some pix of your 4G32 turbo? I didn't think they could still be found. Cheers!

There's an old school guy at Kotara and he has a Galant rally car with a 4G64 in it.
His business is in behind Altapac. I'm trying to remember the name of his business, his name is Laurie, he's a good bloke and said hell look after SG members.
77galantv6 got some work done by him.
I think the business name is Kotara Auto Services?

Dave.
