Good repair shop near Asheville/ Hendersonville?.

Hi, guys. Havenít been on here in a long time because the Jeepís been on the back burner. Short story is my wifeís Ď90 YJ has been in a garage for about 8 years now. It runs like most 90ís, that is, like c**p. Even worse from sitting. I had the carb rebuilt last year and Iíve had little success in getting it to keep running. It will start after some prodding and will fast idle nicely but then just shuts off like you turned the key which makes me think ignition. Iím going to the place where itís stored for the weekend and plan on putting a lot of effort into getting it going with the plan of putting it back on the road. Which brings me to my question. Does anyone know a good shop in the Asheville/Upstate SC area that really knows how to work on this emissions nightmare? Not many Ďmechanics Ď out there today have a clue about how this Carter monster should work. Jeep dealers today would raise the hood and be clueless. Iím hoping I can get it going enough to bring it home and work on it in my drive but if not Iíll probably get a rollback to move it. Thanks for any ideas you may have and Merry Christmas. Ed

Thanks, Old Dogger. Merry Christmas! I just got up to the Jeep and it started surprisingly easy but is still shutting off as it warms up. Hopefully a weekend of figuring this thing out.

Or NC where the towns / cities are located?
Clemson or Easley SC see a lot of Jeeps and there may be someone there.
