I've heard of this place for years but never thought much about them.
Then I recently heard from a friend the owner has been rebuilding a Model T with tracks and skis.......
Fast forward to tomorrow when I'll be dropping off a Hart Parr gas tank so they can roll a new oval gas tank shell but I needed to map the place so I know where I'm going.
Nice website and they do things I never dreamed they did.......including fully rebuilding Model T and Model A engines!

Bob.......if he isn't already a member here I'll do my best to see that he becomes one!.......
BTW.....I thought of you the instant I heard what the owner of the place is up to!
Craig... That's not very far from you. You guy's should get along pretty good together.
Interesting, but why is this guy advertising he will rebuild the oil pump and install a new oil pump gear on a Model T in his Long Block price? Also his price seems on the high side of what is usually offered. I know of better deals for the same work, but it is nice to know there's other options out there.
It's a simple error......easy to do when composing web pages.
I saw some of their work today.........beautiful!
Shipping engines all over creation isn't cheap either.
$3900 for a completely rebuilt engine AND transmission plus extras like a magnet recharge and more?
I'd like to know what other shops charge.
Don.......I was hoping he'd be there but he was on the road.
I did, however, get the full tour and had a rather long chat with the engine guy....... .......he had a '29 Model A engine on the stand getting the FULL treatment!
Nice looking rebuilds but fibre timing gears would not be my first choice!
Joe is a great guy and will treat you right! Very knowledgeable. They rebuilt the engine in my 1930 Tudor and many others in our club.
Most of the long block rebuilding prices I see are running from about $3200-$3500. That is a total rebuild with a re-ground crank and cam. No extras like z-head, better crank and cam though. Those can add up quickly.
