Is there anyone out there that knows a good mechanic in the Barrie Ont Canada area or north to NorthBay Ontario Canada. I am having a hard time finding someone to work on My LB7 Its Head Gaskets that I need done I have gone to the dealer and Im looking at a month before I can get it worked on. I dont know if It will cause more damage waiting. Never ending..........

How close is that to holland Michigan? I know it may not be very close, but Eric Merchant (dmaxallitech) is there and a fine duramax tech from what I understand. He has a site with his phone number on it (gmdieseltech.com). It is an option, but I don't know how good it would be for you.

It's because the head gaskets are a pain to change in the truck. You can change them pretty easy when you get it out and probably re-sell the engine to recover some of the cost or just keep it as a spare.
