Northern Lights Dealer / Mechanics in Panama ?

Hi, we think it's time for some more extensive maintenance on our 6 kW Northern Lights generator. According to the NL website, International Repair Services is the authorized agent for Panama.

Has anyone here worked with them? experiences?

thanks,
Nick.

Nothing really special: complete check-up, compression-test, oil-pan cleaning (will have some sludge), fixing small oil leak at oil pan and a small change on the fitting + hose under the oil-pan for oil changes.

It's that check-up and compression-test that I fear many "mechanics" here are not up to.... Also just want to know if the NL dealer here is any good.

cheers,
Nick.
