Hello and help please
« on: January 05, 2020, 07:25:41 PM »
Hello,
I have just purchased a green 77 California Moke.
I live in Melbourne and was wondering who are the best people to talk to about some mechanical repairs eg service, tune, disk brakes ect.
Many thanks,
Scott

Hi there Scott, and welcome aboard.
This Forum is a great starting point to ask a few questions.
Quite a few very knowledgable people here that can help out. Even if its just some help to ask your Mechanic the right questions if your not too sure about something related to the Moke.
Also, Mokers are fairly spread out over the countryside, so some locals may be able to guide you towards Experianced workshops close to home.

Cheers

Hi,

a group of us went through Rye today for a catch up at the Quarantine station and there were a couple of new Mokes there to check out, shame you didn't attend we could have given you some free advice.

There were a couple of Mokes from Rye, a nice lime green one and a freshly painted yellow one that lives in Rye.

There is Tovon auto in Seaford and Minis plus in Bayswater and Link Automotive in Mitch as far as suppliers and specialist mini/moke repairers. Ask questions here or attend a MOA club meeting on the first Wednesday of the month at teh Vintage Drivers club rooms in Mitcham/Nunawading.

Is the Moke driveable and or registered as it helps to have the Moke with you when you are talking to people.

I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

Thanks for your help Terry and Halfpint.
Yes the moke is driveable and registered....  Just typical moke problems.
Hard to start, not much clutch and brakes....  nothing like drum brakes with no booster.
It's a nice vehicle though....  just needs some love like most mokes.
Sorry I missed you yesterday...
