Is Total Recoil still under the same ownership (Wally) or has it sold? Has anyone had work done by them recently? If so, who performed the work an were you satisfied with the quality of the work? Jim Patrick
I believe Mark Fleischacker from Minnesota now owns the business. Try google.....best search engine on the net.
I received a rebuilt field coil assembly from Mark at Total recoil yesterday to go in a 25 Touring project. Very impressed with the quality of the work and a follow up phone call from him.
Mark does great work. I have bought several from him and am very happy with the quality and fast service.
I'm a happy customer too. Mark does quality work and really goes the extra step to make sure the customer is satisfied with the product. I wish every business was that eager to please.
I have ordered a rebuilt coil from Mark and am anxious to see how his improvement of machining on the back mounting posts results in easier mounting on the block.
Wally and Fran are retired from winding coils. We were elated that Mark wanted to continue quality coils. When we decided to retire we did not want the quality of the coil to be diminished. We've known Mark for some time and were aware of his passion for perfection and customer service. A better choice could not have been made. Fran and I still reminisce over the many friends we made over the years and appreciate hobbyist's supporting Mark's endeavors to supply nothing but a quality field coil.

OK Total Recoil search didn't work, and they aren't on the MTFCA Vendor's list (how come???) so what's their website?

Ok, I'm not ready right now to send a ring out, can anyone tell me the average cost? That way I can save up for it!
Around $200.00 by the time you pay shipping. Or it use to be 2 years ago.
Mark's recent adv. in Model T Times magazine.
Thanks guys--that magazine is probably sitting on top of my printer, right in front of me!!
Earlier today I was trying to google a local acquaintance's phone number, when Linda says, "Here it is; 5xx-xxxx! How'd you find that? I looked it up in the phone book! DUH!!!!! Google still hadn't loaded--dial-up is so confining!!
Well, that's interesting, the website isn't active; it's being held by GoDaddy (a terrible, but popular "easy-to-create" website service). This explains why Bing and Google couldn't find it.
But, I trust he's still there, not that I will need the service for some time! Too many other projects ahead of that!
