    Icon7 Looking for Mechanic whom can get non runner 504gl auto going Sunshine Coast

    Hi

    Advertisement


    did post in May seeking a mechanic whom could get 1973 504 gl auto up and running....has been dry stored for 3 yrs, I am aware auto gear box oil has leaked ( to empty I guess) - cleared up floor a few times each month....would like to get it running - and road worthy, to then seek respray and bring it back to use as my daily car.....

    My work gives me no free time, and I end up in my free time being a taxi for two young kids.....so yes I know I will be in for wrath of comments to do it myself, but really need to get it going.....local garages just don't handle these cars as I would like, and local dealership ....well at $145 per hr, becomes impossible

    comments appreciated - happy to bring on trailer to somewhere within 150km of sunny coast

    Not something you could ask about at the local Mens' Shed? Just putting out a suggestion.

    If you can trailer it, bring it to Brisbane and use either:

    1. Peugeotech
    2. French Car Care
    3. Le French Motor

    All have experience with 504's

    My 1972 504 has a ZF 3HP20 3 speed gearbox - same as the BMW 2002 from the same era. My main leak was where the dipstick entered the box. Also the speedo drive leaked.

    Depending on how quickly you need it up and running, I may be able to help out....
