I got involved with Chester Brothers in 1989 when I had a break down on the highway in my 69 T-Bird. I called a tow truck and was erviced by a Chester brother. He could not really identify my problem, but the car started on its own after sitting for about an hour. He only charged $20 and left me to service a wreck a couple of miles down the road. My car almost made it to the wreck. I walked up to Mr. Chester, told him it happened again, and he told me to wait and it would probably start up again. It did. He advised I bring it to his shop. I did. He diagnosed a bad fuel pump and added an electrical pump rather than putting on a new mechanical pump. Before I got home my car shut off. I made it back to the shop a couple of days later. They found a severely bent gas tank, and installed a new one (pricey!). I never made it home. Looking under the car I noticed my gas tank was once again severely bent. By experimentation and logical reasoning, I deduced the tank was being crushed by vacuum created by the fuel pump. Diagnosis - a previous mechanic had installed the wrong gas cap and it was not venting, thus the fuel supply was cut off when the vacuum was too great. A $4 cap fixed the problem(s). I removed the electric fuel pump. All of Chester Brothers work was of no use. I had wasted a lot of money for repairs I didn't need. Chester Brothers diagnostic skills leave a lot to be desired. I wouldn't recomment them.
