    I went over to see them a few months ago, I need and still do, a belt change.
    Jason, the guy who runs the place, I think, seems well informed and the quote he gave me was not unreasonable.
    I am overhauling the drive shafts at the moment, but as soon as that is done it will be going to them for the belts.

    Iwill post results of the job.

    There is a specialist on the dock road in birkenhead just up from were the Mersey ferries more.

    Highly regarded so I'm told, don't know the name but there are lots of logos on the building

    Is the guy in Birkenhead called Hesketh ? If so I have heard of him from another owner who seemed very happy.

    Thats it HESKETHS, he does old lambo's and daytonas, if they can tune a V12 a 348 will be a piece of cake.

    Thanks Guys,

    I will do some phoning around.

    I know Jason at JMH used to belong to SCS in Knutsford.

    I seem to recall they did some of the servicing for Stratstones in Wimslow but I may be mistaken.

    Where abouts up the Dock road, as I'm going to a paint shop over that way tomorrow thought I'd check them out (and don't want to be seen cruising up and down "Corpie Road" looking for them!!)

    Up past the flour mills and warships, over the lights and some where there on the left if my memory serves me, check out the yellow pages.

    I went up and had a look last night, but could not see the place, I think I may have a phone number somewhere, I'll look when I get home.

    I think you are correct with Jason doing work or working at Strathstone's

    Think we may be getting our 70's F1 teams mixed up

    Hesketh = Lain Tyrell, now Wirral Jag (I think)

    they had a bit of a mixed reputation a few really good resto's but a few mistakes, remember looking at a 250TDF they did in about 1991(ish) fantastic quality job. last I heard Tyrell was doing the pubs and clubs as a singer.

    A couple of local people who have good reputations on the wirral seem to be DRP in Hoylake and PNM in Wallasey neith F-car specialists but have done work on them (PNM is a Lotus bod who does v good work)

    They have a new website at www.j-m-h.co.uk - worth a look for more info - do a lot of race prep.

    jmh have just done an annual service on my 328- i have to say that they did an excellent job.Jason saved me money where possible such as straightining the aerial instead of the ferrari quoted price of £419 plus fitting!The car seems quicker than ever and the brakes in particular feel better.The car was waxed and valeted and i am in no doubt as to where i will go in future.

    Well, I just got back my 348 TS from Jason at JMH in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire.

    The car runs perfect, and Jason, in fairness saved many ££££ by correcting problems without going the extortionate Ferrari route..

    I would recommend his services without hesitation - a very knowledgeable guy with the marque for all models and open for lots of annoying questions from an over inquistive customer.

    No affialiation etc etc etc ..

    I've used Jason at JMH for the last for years, I would not go anywhere else, he will drop off and pick up also.
