Series 1 86 Mechanic in South Florida

Greetings all,

I've got a great 55 Series 1 86 that needs a head gasket replaced and just can't seem to find a mechanic in the area. Full disclosure, I've worked with Norman (Brit4wd) and Stephen (Safari HP) and have not had the best of luck Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks. Those are options. I'll take a look. I'm in Miami. I just wish there was someone reputable here. Oh well.
Truer words could not be spoken. I've actually engaged in that search as well being of Cuban descent myself I realized over the years that desire to do the work is sometimes more important than ability. Thanks for the message.

Thank you for the insight. I have already ordered the gasket replacement kit as well as a new ignition coil, new distributor assembly, electric fuel pump and spare carburetor. You are correct in that that is the choke return spring.
Much appreciated Tony (from Alaska)
