I think I found out about Mike at Northmount Auto on this site.

Disastrous encounter. I took in my 1966 Volvo to switch a tachometer. Mike then says the new one is also faulty, after he says he spent "hours" trying. He said no charge, but I gave him $50 for his trouble. That was before he gives me back my old tach, with the wires cut, and the new tach - 3 wires loose, 2 of them cut off and no connectors attached. How did he test this without attaching connections?
I think he did not even try, and now I have cut wires somewhere under the dash, with no indication of where some of them are.

I asked him to show me where the cut wires are under the dash. He shows me the main one, but not the others; he says he doesn't have time...

He gives me back my $50, and says he doesn't want me as a customer.

Dishonest, I am now going to struggle hooking back up a working tach. And I was about to spend $250 fixing the tach that he said wasn't working, which I now suspect works fine, he just didn't try it...

That brings me back to last year, when he replaced my muffler. After, it was rattling big time, so I took it back to him. He said he re-fixed it, and I gave him another $20 for his trouble. But it still rattled, and I had to pay yet another $75 at a real muffler shop to fix. No big deal, but in retrospect, I see the shoddy workmanship.

Avoid this unscrupulous guy; he gives mechanics a bad name.

Good to know - we can walk you through the process of hooking up the tach.
