Mechanic Needed

I'm looking for a good mechanic in the Fort Lauderdale area. I have a 1982 Marine Tradder with twin 120 Ford Lehmans. I need to have the coupler between the transmission and prop shaft replaced.

it's a pretty simple job. Anyone with a set of wrenches and feeler gauges should be able to handle it.

Agree ... Anyone who works on inboards regularly has done that job. It is not engine specific at all.

Mechanic Needed

Regardless how easy the job may seem to some that was not the question asked by the op Mikef130. He is looking to receive a recommendation for a competent, or good, mechanic local to Ft Lauderdale FL to perform this task.

The point is that any mechanic or yard worker can do the job, no special requirements or high qualifications required.

Greetings,
"Anyone can do the job". HAH! Looks like none of you have dealt with "mechanics" in Ft. Lauderdale. I have on several occasions that's why I'm still looking.
