Talking Buffalo NY, Mechanic needed

Hey guys, Anyone know of a good 7.3 guy in or around the Buffalo area? I own my own company and I need someone to maintain my fleet which includes several 7.3s. I hate to go to the dealer if there is a good shop around. I have not had the best luck with any shops. A 7.3 is a different creature. Thanks!

I used to go to a guy 'rcpent18' in Orchard Park. He was great to work with and prices were more than reasonable.

Sadly I don't have his number anymore. Wish I could be of more help. I think hes company name was RCP Enterprises. IIRC

I have a great diesel mechanic but he is located in black river NY which is about 3 hours or so from buffalo, so i guess if you are ever in that area and need something hes the guy i would recommend. its called Git R Done auto repair, just ask for steve.

Powerstroke Shop



Also looking for a reputable shop for my powerstroke, I do my own work but don't have access to any computer diagnostic equipment, looking for someplace other than the dealer that specializes in these engines. Wish we had someone like Bill Hewitt from POWERSTROKEHELP.COM - The Information Source for Ford Power Stroke Diesel Owners & Mechanics in WNY
