Default Mechanic and instrument questions

Tulsa owner of Superformance Cobra for a year and a half. Looking for recommendation of a mechanic in the area. Also, several of my Smith instruments are not working. Which brand is best and who in the area can install?
Thanks,
Chip

Nisonger sells and services Smiths gauges. They are OEM in 427 Cobras so many people use them for that reason.

Hello Chip,
And congrats on the purchase. When you say several of your instruments are not working can you be more specific? I bet it is both the temperature gauges And the fuel gauge. If they are original, I would suggest that the ether lines to the engine compartment have been damaged by a spark or something. They can be repaired but itís better to just replace them. The cost is about the same.,There are electronic versions of the Smiths gauges available but Iím not sure the internal lighting will look the same. Fuel gauge might just be the wiring or connectors at the tank. Send me an email and Iíll give you my contact number. Easier to talk than type.
