    Default Engine rebuilder - north-east Victoria?

    Hi all,

    Advertisement


    I am thinking of sending my 1962 ID19 motor to someone for a rebuild/recondition. It is mightily tired after some 250,000 or so miles.

    Some time ago someone told me about a highly recommended engine reconditioner located somewhere in north-east Victoria (at least that is what I remember) who does classic car work.

    Firstly can anyone tell me who this is likely to be be (if it is in fact a well known individual or firm), and failing that recommend any engine restorers/reconditioners in Melbourne / Victoria who are going to do a very good job of this and some idea of costs? I am thinking a few thousand dollars (3 to 5)?

    thanks

    I have memory of reading somewhere about a classic car restorer in Euroa. Does that ring bells with anyone?
