I had the opportunity this past Saturday to visit Royce at his shop for some much needed help and expertise in the rebuild of my front axle for my 24 touring car. Started the day with a ride to lunch in his ’30 model A (super nice car – just like his whole stable of cars!!!). After lunch we rebuilt my front axle, finding a couple of surprises, but in the end we were able to get it done. Thanks so much Royce for your time and patient. I still consider myself a newbie and due to guys like Royce and this wonderful board with its wealth of information sure makes my progress into the Model T world just a fantastic journey. Thanks again Royce and to all you folks out there. I could not have imagined how much fun and pleasure I’m getting out of my T!!!!
Donnie, you surprised me, I thought you went to Royce to get your water pump rebuilt. Royce is a big fan of water pumps
Donnie, you should of had him install your E-Timer while you were there! (LOL)
Looks to me like Royce is following his fathers footsteps. His Dad helped everyone and anyone and always with a smile.
The Model T hobby is just like a big extended family. So nice to have everyone help each other when it is needed.
Three weeks ago we bought "Frank", a 1912 Touring from Royce. I already knew Royce so I had no reservations when we bought the car and wired the funds before seeing the car. Turned out just as he described it. Looking at the picture my wife took the day he delivered the car, he's the cute one nearer the camera with a shirt that matches the color of the car. By the way, the car is all apart and parts are in the paint shop as of this morning.
John or Royce,
Is that an aluminium hogs head with a starter or a cast iron one painted?
There is a starter on the car. It does come in handy from time to time because my wife wants to learn to drive it. She's a small lady and just cannot pull a crank.
Donnie it was a pleasure. I learn something every day, more so when working on Model T stuff.
