New owner in L.A

Hi all! Just bought a black '89 Jeep Wrangler 6 cylinder 4.2l automatic with 134,000 on, almost fully restored by a previous owner but I got it for a song. Goes well although think there's a hole in the manifold, the idle was too low and it kept stalling at stop lights (I adjusted the screw and it seems fine now), the power steering is stiff in places and I think I need a new brake booster. Other than that I need new doors (came with none) and a bit of cosmetic finishing but overall I'm very happy with it. If anyone could recommend a good mechanic and parts/spares place in the Los Angeles area I'd be very grateful. Great forum all - cheers FD

Congrats on your purchase. These JEEPS are very addictive. Call around your area and you may find one shop in particular that is more appreciative of JEEPs than some of the others are. If you find one like that, they will probably give you better service than the others will, just because. Good luck!

Hee Hee, you ass in a heap o trouble, Boy! ...Great big Georgia state cop
