MECHANICAL REBUILDING

We offer rebuilding services for many early components, including carburetors, starters, generators and magnetos. We specialize in the rebuilding of early clutches for American LaFrance and other makes, custom parts manufactured, new disc replacement, correct linings installed, updated bearing replacement.

PARTS MANUFACTURING

While commitment to originality is at the heart of our restoration work, parts for century-old specialty vehicles are difficult and sometimes impossible to find. Other times, modern materials may present the best solution for a component to function well. We offer foundry casting services, as well as manual and automated parts manufacturing. We also maintain an inventory of valves, gaskets, and other recreation parts–click below to see our listings.
