does anyone know of an engine rebuilder + pan straightener in upstate ny.? thanks
No but if you come to ct you can have George King do it or Ed Stein in Mass
J and M in Southborough ma will be the absolute best in tons of people's opinions. They do everything in house.
Joe Bell's work is very well thought of.
Joe Bell is my choice.
Put it in a crate and send it to Joe Bell he has done 4 for me no complaints and he is a decent guy to work with.
If you don't want misery, take it to J and M in Massachusetts.
Top flight machine shop with much experience rebuilding Model t engines
I agree, you won’t find any more knowledgeable engine builders anywhere.
They have the equipment that few engine builders have and a wealth of experience and knowledge of the Model T engine.
They will break it down for you and show and tell you what is wrong and what is needed.
They have done three 1912 engines and transmissions for me and they are perfect. Could not be more pleased.
Last time I counted, I have four of Joe Bell's engines in my cars. I'm happy with his work and continue to recommend him.
J and M does have the proper pan table to straighten pans. And they are close enough to bring it yourself
I'm from central NY. My vote is send it off to Ed Stein and son. I Every one of the motors they have redone that I have seen have been the nicest running motors.
Where is Joe Bell shop ?
Joe is north eastern ohio. In Tiffin. He's an upstanding fellow. You couldn't ask for better help.
Send it to John and Michael at J&M. You wont be disappointed. My motor and trans was rebuilt and balanced and it runs great.
I would recommend Miller's just south of Cincinatti. BJ and Ron done 6 engines for us with no issues. Good folks to see on tour, too!
thanks for the info. i will be contacting these people. gary
Joe Bell is truly the best! He is an outstanding teacher, and is very knowledgeable in all aspects of restoration and engine rebuilding. A fine man who helped me tremendously and continues to serve the "T" community with pride. Tiffin Ohio He will treat you right.
Ditto that Randall! He's done two for me already, plus a big help in the "knowledge department".
Kevin Prus is one of the Best, he had 5 engines go cross country in 2009 with out any problems, Columbiana Ohio 330-774-7130
