300TDI Mechanic Near Vancouver, BC

Trying to help out someone who has a 300TDI 110 near Vancouver, BC or Washington State.
He needs the head pulled and skimmed and a new head gasket.
Also from the description, the belt is possibly a notch off and needs sorting.
Suggestions welcome.
Not for the repairs themselves, but some one to undertake... But who?
Shop or individual who knows what they are doing.
Feel free to PM suggestions if you don't want to endorse here.

Chris Snell can weigh in on Defenders NW (Washington) but he has a 300 and strongly vouches for Brian and his shop.

Scott Pelly [CDN38] has had 300's (now a td5) and swears by Rovalution (Vancouver, BC).

I know both shops, and know that they are highly competent, honest and trustworthy, but I don't have a 300, nor have i had engine work done there.

Yes on both counts.

If in BC the guys at rovalution are well versed in the 300tdi (Old news for our CA cousins that started getting TD5 trucks last year....)

If in WA we can certainly help - our primary focus is the 300tdi and we keep stock on just about everything for the motor.

If it's Vancouver, Rovalution is where you want to take it, no question.

Here's what they were doing yesterday morning...

Don has done me good before on a weekend. He came out to the shop on Sunday night to give me parts he ordered for me. Very nice and clean shop he has up in Vancouver. Good communications throughout. I wouldn't hesitate working with him.
