Need help in Austin TX

There is a 206D with a blown engine in Austin. I need help with an engine swap, either an inexpensive mechanic and or shade tree, willing to pay some good $$$. I think the engine is already out. Can anyone help? Shipping will be $1g.

I will be in Austin at the end of July, but a motor swap would be way over my head. Not my idea of a vacation, either.

If your needing a great mechanic in Austin area, I take my car to

Monte Becker
512-228-1753
coolnchaos-mbdsl1 (at) yahoo.com

I took my 87 300sdl, for over heating problem that a MB shop couldn't fix. And he fixed my trannie when they MB shop wanted to $2,000 for it. He just adjusted the system and I'm driving around today with a perfect trannie. He saved me $2,000 and fixed my car faster then the MB shop.

Give him a call and set up a time, because he is very busy but worth it.

The van is actually located in Waco, can anyone recommend a mechanic there?
