Drove 2 1/2 hours today to look at an engine. Any that doesnt know ,Joe is a super guy. Full of knowledge and skill. I got to tour his shop and see his toys. Even got to watch him pour mains and line bore them. Brought home a nice engine for my TT project. This was a really great weekend. Brought home a vintage lathe and a rebuilt engine from Joe.
Dallas,Did you see Joe's run in stand and the way he starts them? Bud.
Yes. I think mine started on 2nd turn on mag.
Dallas...the coolest part of Joe and his place is he knows where EVERYTHING is!! How'd ya like his airplane?? ;)
Joe is a treasure to us around here !
Bud, the big drill and foot pedal got tired out a long time ago, it was great while is lasted. Thanks guys, I just like to treat others as I would like to be treated, and I love the T's!
He is almost done with mine. Canít wait to get it. I donít really know him but felt very comfortable having him build my motor after speaking with him face to face.
John..you'll love it. Great rebuilder, great price. Yesterday afternoon I tried to start Pete, my 1912 CRP/U, battery deader than a door-nail. Wouldn't even take a charge. So I was able to start him up "ice cold" on Mag!! That's a Joe Bell rebuild for ya!!
Joe Bell, well what can I say about this man that has not already been said? Joe is one of the kindest, most helpful, outgoing person I have met in this hobby. His KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS and passion of the Model T is an inspiration to me as well as countless others. Mr Bell, you are truly a treasure to this hobby. I have had dealings with Mr Bell on two occasions and can't help but leave words of praise whenever his name is mentioned on the forum.
OK I just have to ask...If you go to Joe's house do you knock on the door or "Ring" his bell?
Joe has a house??? I thought he lived in the shop.
Could someone share his contact info please?
David send him a PM. Click on his name.
