Experienced mechanic for Holden FX/FJ in Perth

Hi, can anyone recommend a mechanic in Perth that has good experience working on Holden FX/FJ. I've just inherited 1953 48-215 which is in fairly good condition but needs some mechanical work.

Thanks for any recommendations.
Cheers
Rob

Oil leak

Hi guys trying to source a slow oil leak (1 drop ever 6 seconds or so) that appears to be coming from rear main. I can see oil marks on front of inspection cover but not on the back of the engine block. I thought rear mains leak down the back of the engine block. Anyway leak is very dark almost black but oil in sump is clean as a whistle, no sign of contaminants. Any ideas? Im stumped by this leak especially why its so different in colour to the rest of the oil. This is a newly rebuilt motor not even a km on it yet. Any help would be great. Thanks

Jackaroo heater core wanted

Hey guys,
A bit of a long shot request but after an ordinary weekend where the above part died and left me and the fam stranded beside the road with a footwell full of coolant, we have worked out its the heater core. My jack is a 2001 model and id prefer the copper style one. Apparently the aluminium aftermarket ones dont have as long a lifespan due to electrolysis?? Happy to pay costs of course.
I think the part covered a number of years in the jackaroo. my car is petrol but id say they are the same as the diesel model anyway.
