Posi Repair...Who Do You Know?
Permalink  
 


My 76 Chevy with Eaton posi is making a nice grinding, crunching sound at low speeds.

Anybody got a guy or is anybody here a guy?

Don't have time to clean the garage and don't have time to fix it myself.....damn truck couldn't even wait til I finished the house..

I got a recommendation from Al at Driveline on Midwest to call Technic Auto Transmission on Birchmount Rd. Anyone know of these guys?

 Thanks.

Too far away though.

I'm in TO and I can still drive it to a shop, but not too far.

Thanks.

I didn't know Fawcett did repairs. I thought they were just a resto shop.

I live in Picton and have been to Brads several times and it was worth the trip. I am not a fan of Fawcetts. Brad can be reached at 1-519-356-5016

When my car was rear-ended they also did the repair through the insurance company. For a business that services a limited specialty market to still be here for over 50 years they have to be doing things right or they would have folded years ago. A friend had a small main seal leak repaired there and it stared again 4 months later so they fixed it again no problem.

Why would you take a rear end repair to a restoration shop? Take it to a shop that specializes in that type of work. I've deal with Driveline in Pickering and Oshawa as well as Otis gear. All good shops with a good reputation.

People keep referring to Fawcett as a restoration shop what is only part of their business. They also do everything from pouring babett main bearings to brakes and selling cars. I am not saying these shops are not good but I go to where I know who has done this kind of work before. I would have had the gears cut at Oshawa gear but they were considerably more.
