    Anybody down south who can do stem seals?

    Basically my stem seals have gone and the cheapest quote ive had back is just under £600 and i think thats ridiculous, so can anyone give me a price if they can do it must be a competant person though as im driving to germany in the next 2months and cant risk it dying on me!

    I would do it myself but i havent got the tools so if anyone can do it for me and give me a price id be very grateful thanks!!!
