Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Mentor in Waco TX
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Steve Bourgeois on Thursday, May 28, 2015 - 01:32 pm:

I have been working trying to get my wifeís T road worthy. It seems that every time I try and fix one thing, I screw up 2 more. Is there anyone in the Waco TX area that will be willing to mentor? I can rebuild a í65 Mustang from bumper to bumper, but when it comes to the T, I feel like I have never held a wrench. They guys in the Lone Stare Tís have been great, the issue is that they are 2 hours away. This is why I am looking for someone in or around Waco TX.
PM me for contact information.

Steve, I am sure glad someone other than myself feels that way.... I have owned so many cars from the 50's to the 70's and always did all the work myself.... I purchased my first which was a 55 chevy when I was just 14 years old and even painted it myself.... My dad worked all the time and didn't work on cars so I depended on others to learn from.... But as I have stated before, this T kicks my butt.... As for replacing parts, motors, rear ends or front axles, most any parts I have no problem... it is the rebuilding that for some reason just doesen't register with me.... I still have a Ruckstell on my shop table with all new parts, bearings, gears, powder coated, everything needed but haven't finished the assembly yet..... very frustrating because I always have been able to rebuild most everything I have owned... and I hate to ask for help because it is probably so simple to assemble it will be embarrassing but it looks like if it gets finished I will need to suck it up...

Would like to help Steve but I'm 1 beer south of Austin and 5 beers south of Waco. Don't know any T guys there either. Bring your concerns and questions to this Forum. The collective brain trust will mentor you.

Freighter Jim,
Dan and I finally were able to connect.
Thank you for going the extra mile with me.
(Guess in your line of work, you have a lot of extra miles.)
Dan is going to stop by on his next trip into Waco.

Steve
