I just learned that our Friend Sandy McTavish in Newton,Ontario passed away from a Heart Attack on March 31,2014. He was 81.
Sandy was a Master Engine Rebuilder ,he had the ability to tell what was going on with an Engine with just the sound or feel of an Engine -without fail.
Many people when they sold a car would boast that it had a McTavish rebuilt Engine.
When Sandy could not find an Engine Block for his 2-Lever he recast some.
Many probably never got past his shop, but they should have seen the addition he built on to his house that contained that contained his 2 story Pipe Organ.
I will miss Sandy he was Old School and Good People
The Model T Community has lost a great man. My condolences to his family.
He just did the babbitt work in my engine last October.
Indeed we have lost a true asset to our hobby. He was also good friend. Please keep his family in your prayers.
My visits to their place are unforgettable. He was an incredible man.
Nice link to his obituary.
