Before selecting someone to rebuild an engine or restore a car, join a car club and find some folk who have had work done by the firm you have in mind. Don't just base your selection on geography, price, website or other advertising.

Is this sage advice the result of an unhappy experience?

If it is or isn't, it is still excellent advice!!

That also applies to women you date & might consider getting married to someday .....

Sounds like there's a story here. If you had a bad experience, you should share it. Could be a learning experience for others. You don't have to divulge the name of the offending business if you don't want to, but some details might help to drive the point home.

All I can say is that the work I've had done on my T's has been good. I've done most of the work on my 3 T's other than Babbitt, and some machining work.
The rest I did myself.
A good shop or individual that does good work will stay in business regardless of what some disgruntled guy says.

If you find a shop that generally has a good reputation that's who you go with.
You'll never please everybody. There's always a guy in the crowd who is continually bashing somebody.

If I ever need to have a T engine rebuilt, I'm taking it to Mike Bender, he lays out all of his work and processes in his great series of videos:
