David, I don't think I would be happy with that 'repair' or the call out, it surely will not be a permanent fix, he should at least of investigated the dry joint or loose connection, the $90.00 (£50.3254) call out is perfectly justifiable to cover business running costs, but I would at least want some attempt at effecting a lasting repair, you should have had 30 minutes site time.
On another tack, it is really great having a member on the forum that can instantly put a name to the faces in factory photographs, what can you tell about Jack Furness and Alf Searle whom both went on to run a Vincent repair and restoration business in Cromer, Hertfordshire, really nice guys to deal with loads of knowledge.
