Need a mechanic in Asheville
Hello all, I'm in Asheville nc and need to work on my differential. There is a leak and damage of some sort that I'm hoping is the wheel bearings and not the gears themselves. About ten miles out of town I was hearing intermittent rumbling that I took to strips on the road, once stopped I smelled burning gear oil and realized it was coming from the back of the vehicle. I should have fixed the leak in West Virginia, live and learn.
I was considering renting some jacks and doing the work with the help of a local friend but have decided that I should have a professional do it. I'm looking for advice as to finding a bus mechanic in a new town, or better yet someone who knows of a good one in Asheville. I'm considering asking around at the school bus garages and firehouses but do not know if this is frowned upon, don't be shy to inform me if this is a good way to get my ass kicked, you might save my life.
Any and all advice is welcome.
Thank you all so much.
