Ford Lehman Mechanic - Southern Vancouver Island

I'm tired of being disappointed by the lack of service, and quite frankly, poor workmanship of my current mechanic.

Does anybody in the Southern Vancouver Island area have a recommendation for a good mechanic that can work on a Ford Lehman and provide good advice on keeping the old girl running?

Thanks in advance.

I do most of the work myself, however the engine has some piston slap and I would like to get some advice on options. I have no issues tearing down the engine myself, but if it comes to more advanced work such as putting a sleeve in it, timing injection pumps or diagnosing more complex items I don't have the knowledge.

Looking for a good solid mechanic that I can pay for good advice and capable hands.
