I rang Dave (first time caller) with a problem with my BW65. Given that Dave is in the business to sell gearbox's etc I thought I would be in for some kind of sales pitch. Instead what I got was a lot of help to try and rectify the problem I had. After an in depth chat I took Dave's advice and had a re-look at my problem and to his credit, he was spot on! This kind of service I thought had long gone but no, it's still alive and well and here at borgwarnerspecialist.co.uk. You sir, are a star! Many thanks Dave.
It became clear in May 2019 that the Borg Warner Type 35 in my Wolseley 6/110 was in need of an overhaul. Gear changes had become at the best clunky and at the worst almost impossible to achieve. I completed the on line enquiry page and within 24 hours was contacted by Dave. He visited me, looked at the car and then I arranged to take it down to Baldock. He removed the box from the car, rebuilt and reinstalled it and delivered the car back to me in North Yorkshire on his way to Scotland all in four days. The gearbox is like new. Smooth as silk. This was outstanding service from a marvellous professional man. I have no hesitation in recommending Dave to anyone who has Borg Warner auto box problems. He is an absolute Gent and really knows about these boxes. Thanks for a great service.
5 star plus!
Triumph Stag Restoration - I required a complete overhaul for a BW auto gearbox in my triumph stag. Dropped the gearbox to Dave and he reconditioned the gearbox the same week. Very honest man and a pleasure to deal with. A*
I contacted Dave re my gearbox problems. He was extremely knowledgeable about my vehicle and gearbox.
He managed to diagnose the problem and gave an extremely competitive and fair price to recondition original box or provide a replacement. Dave went out of his way to provide a replacement and delivered by his son locally to my region saving £150 courier costs.
Gearbox back in the car and working like a dream. Dave rang and had various conversations from initial contact up to point of gearbox back into the car. A pleasant experience, a man with great knowledge about his specialist area and will help you save money. His word is his bond. I have nothing but admiration and kind words for this man. Many thanks Dave.
I recommended you 110% to anyone who requires a gearbox recondition / repair / replacement especially for old classic cars.
I can’t wait to use the old daimler for my niece wedding in July as restoration is nearly complete.
I had issues with my 1972 Triumph Stag BW transmission for sometime. I contacted David - he was quick to respond and reconditioned my gearbox timely. To say gearbox is improved is an understatement, the car drives much better and I wished I had done it sooner. Top work.
I spoke to Dave via phone and explained my needs . To say he was very helpful is an understatement . I arranged removal of box locally in Essex and transported it to Dave . He completed a full rebuil and I collected it within 14 Days as promised , att a very reasonable cost . Refitted it is now better than ever and makes a 50 year old car a delight to drive .
A gentleman and a pleasure to deal with ,I cannot thank him enough .
Professional and informative
Via telephone conversation, David diagnosed the problem with my borg warner 35 gearbox to which I had a faulty inhibitor switch. He was very knowledgeable and helpful.
I struggled to find anyone who could recondition borg warner automatic transmissions, until a friend referred me to borgwarnerspecialist. David reconditioned my Stag bw65 gearbox and it runs perfectly. Highly recommended.
Dave was quick to respond to my inquiry. I delivered my faulty gearbox and it was fixed and returned within 1 week. Great service, thanks.
