Hi Spudster

I can provide you details once I return to my office in the morning.  I just recently shipped and cleared customs an Esprit ex UK into Sydney last week.   The importer asked me the same question.
Otherwise there is always my brother John Reece in Melbourne who owned Race and Prestige !

Cremorne Prestige in Artarmon have done a lot of work on Esprits over the years. You could try them.

Yes, thanks I hear that they are also hideously expensive for even the simplest of jobs. It is however at least one option. Cheers

There's Andecorps well trained long leashed spanner twirler Paul too....

Not sure of the details, but PM andecorp ideally.

I can put you in touch with him too if you like, but try Andecorp first.

I've just taken the Sport 350 into the new dealer (Trivetts) who have their service facilities out on Botany Road. They're taking a cautious approach to the overall service and have quoted on the major which actually seemed pretty reasonable. PM me if you want an intro to their service manager - I can't vouch for their work yet, however all seems better than I expected (I get at least one big service on all the cars from the dealers - to keep that magical logbook speckled with their stamps).
C'mon, do it!

They have serviced my Lotus's in the past, weren't too bad cost wise, although they weren't Esprits.

Spend $800 on a half decent tool kit and do it yourself,  that way you save some cash and know that the job's been done. With an 86 I would stay well clear of main dealers and look for a specialist - armed with a service manual there's nothing too tricky about the 4 pot Esprit's.

Mechanic/specialist? It's going to be difficult so you'll just have to sell it to me :D
