btw have also done extensive (complete TDI Engine overhaul, new tubes, cylinders) in ACCRA with a guy called Ian Webster, maybe able to dig out his phone number, send me a mail. Ian is a difficult guy, but has a good pool of mechanics, Job was well done, took 14 days though, was Easter and Ghana is very Christian. Also all parts avail in Ghana.
Re my guy in Bamako Issa Diarra (Tel two posts higher), I have full confidence in him, he never charged me anything like this over the past 4 years, A weeks work is maybe 100,000 FCFA, Obviously this is not a garage as u may think but just a good mechanic, under the Mango tree. I had my Land Rover repaired before and after every trip, to Guinea, Burkina, Cote d'Ivoire, etc.
