    Default SJ410 Mechanic Cape Town

    Hi Guys,
    I've just picked up a SJ410, and it needs a little attention.
    Can anybody recommend a mechanic/repair shop in the Cape Town area.

    Thanks

    I think the gearbox needs to be repaired or replaced, I can't get into 5th or get above 60km/h.

    You'll have to be more specific. SJ410's didn't come with a fifth gear.

    Likely yours is a conversion with a Nissan 1400 engine and matching 5 speed gearbox?

    hey guys
    sorry about the lack of info.
    i don't know much about the vehicle, it used to belong to my dad and he didn't have much paperwork about it.
    I'm keen to get it back into shape....hopefully like some of the monsters I've seen on the forum.

    Send us pics of the engine, then we can see what is in there.

    But any mechanic with a 10mm / 12mm and 17mm spanner can fix it.

    Does not seem worth fixing

    Give it to someone at work

    Johan Swart (JS Motors) 021 853 4554 or 082 8008317 is your man. He is a Suzuki SJ410 expert and is very good. Around the corner from him is Helderberg Gearbox and Diff (George Taylor). Between the two of them they will get your SJ back on road and in excellent running order. Wherever you are it is worth the extra drive to have them take care of you and I speak from personal experience with my SJ410.
