I am located near Minneapolis Minnesota and have two T's that need some mechanic work. Can anyone recommend someone I can contact in the area for the work that needs to be done? Thanks, Matt

Try Eric Hylen in St. Cloud, or Warren Mortenson in Ham Lake. We both post here and are two of the few in the area who are willing to do T work for hire.

Thanks Eric, I have the carburetor off of my 1926 Pickup that needs to be worked on because right now it continually overflows gas, it has had some parts replaced this summer but needs some fine tuning. My 1923 Speedster I would say is 95% finished but just needs the hands of a true T mechanic to finish the project. Both cars are stored in southern MN but I could arrange to transport them to you. Please advise me what the next step would be. Thanks so much for your response. Matt

Where are the cars located in Southern MN? If you want it now, Eric's probably your man. I don't have a heated accessible work area right now so I'd have to wait until Spring or if you have heated space I could come to you. Another fellow who can probably handle your needs is Jim Perry in Maple Grove. Send me a private e-mail and I'll give you his number if you want.

Your carb problem sounds like either a stuck or misadjusted float, maybe a bad float valve.
