While trying to help a newbie he asked me who makes what parts? He asked about Ron Patterson, Brent Mize, R.V. Anderson, Jack Darron and several others he had read about on this forum. So it would be a good thing to create a list of who makes what parts for all to reference.
Please no comments other that who makes what..Thank You
Ron Patterson rebuilds coils, generators and starters.
That's a pretty tall order. There are a lot of them, and some make lots of things like R.V Anderson who has a twelve page catalogue, and John Regan who lists a lot of items on his website. Some specialize in just one thing. Here are a few.
Calimer – wood wheels & parts
Carrigan – wood wheels & parts
Johnson – wood wheels & parts
Stutzman _ wood wheels & parts
Larry Sidmore – AC brakes
Mark McLaren – rims
Kevn Prus – high compression heads
Tom Rootlieb – sheetmetal body parts
Jim Guinn – wood transmission bands
Dave Nolting – transmission drums
There are lots of others. Some of the regular parts dealers, like Glen Chaffin and Bob Bergstadt, also make parts all the other dealers sell. Seat springs come from Snyder's. Stan Howe makes parts for his carburetor restorations, and I assume Russ Potter does the same. A lot of these folks advertise in the magazines and on the websites.
I suppose I should have mentioned that there are some who don't necessarily make everything they sell, but they find it and make it available, like Jim Dix (Big Flats Rivets).
I make Hassler bolts,Left hand ruckstall shifters(when I can get parts) ruckstall shift rods,Do top bows,running board tire carriers for hacks,pick-ups and 15-25 tourings and roadsters.Also make TT jack handles.I rewood bodies for myself,and have sold a couple of those.
