Need to locate Dllas area mechanical FI person

Anybody know of a good mechanic familiar with the Bosch mechanical FI? (6.3) Anywhere in the D/FW area would work.

I don't know of any shops, most of my work was done in Houston.

A lot of people usually mention Rodney Herson but I called and he does not work on cars that old.

thanks
Fred

Mechanical FI

Fred

I understand that this system is similar to the Diesel mechanical injection system. Maybe you can find someone who's familiar with Diesel injection that may help.

MBCA used to maintain a list of good MB shops that Karl Strand sent to me.

I'll Email it to you as it's too big to attach here.

You might call Barry Gibbs at Nine-Eleven Enterprises to see if he works on vintage Benz. He has been in business since 1975. Excellent shop.

Try Will Samples of S&S Imports in Dallas. He does a lot of work on older stuff like 113's, 190SL's etc.

I thought he was with the bee Gees....

Actually I talked to him once, they do mostly Porsche and some late model BMW and MB.

David Poole? I think they moved. He has done a lot of work with 6.9's, he used to federalize them.

He's still there

He's still at that big place with the ramp. I visited him when i was last in Dallas three weeks ago. He's doing well and is now active on the tech forum.
