Mercury Service

can anyone tell me who the best man /company is to service a mercury engine in the North West. I'm based in Rochdale and I don't mind travelling within reason. have heard some real horror stories. Generally do the simple stuff myself but feel a "good service" is in order.

Any recommendations?

cheers

Scottydog

There is only one guy on the Fylde coast area that I trust with my engines and thats Jim Cookson-exceptionally good and trustworthy. I'll pm his contact details. He usually comes to me to do jobs so you need to see if its financially viable for him to come to you or if you can take it to him. You'll not find better!

Jim is excellent. Film star looks....my other half isn't sure which we remind her off when we are out there with the engines and putting the world to rights. She reckons its either Last of the Summer Wine ..or a double take of Victor Meldrew.
