Portland maine area 110 repair

Hey guys a client of mine just broke down on RT 113 in maine 50 miles outside of Portland Maine. Sounds like a wheel issues. Started pulling violently to the right like something locked up on his ex mod 2.5NA. He is from Washington state not local and looking for a shop or help.

Thanks Guys!

Aw crap your right. Totally forgot about that. If he's 59 mikes from Portland, he must be close to Fryeberg...

Think maybe a wheel bearing is gone. Seems like right front wheel very reluctant to turn

Did he try the Rover dealership in Scarborough? Not far from Portland. They should be able to fix it.

I'm still available for emergencies.
If indeed the truck is in Fryburg area perhaps ressurected motors in Ossipee can help.
If this is still on just give me a shout in the AM.

Passed your info along. He is an epic road trip cross country in a ex mod 110 he picked up in VT.

If the other options do not work out, check with Autolab in Portland.

Sound like right front wheel bearing went from further talking to him.

Passing on your number Andy. May be good for him to hook up with a fellow ex mod owner.
