Bill et al.
Someone on San Francisco Peninsula, with a 1939 Daimler, has
suggested that I contact Alec Giamo in San Carlos. I haven't tried to look
him up, and probably won't do so since I am coming to the conclusion that it
is very unlikely that I am in need of remade bearings at present (they were
renewed only very few thousand miles ago) but others might find this
information useful (and a review of actual work would be helpful).

[PreWar] Help with babbitt bearings
In California I would talk to Jan
Voboril. The last phone number I had was 310 455 1026. Jan has driven his 1016
Lancia across the country and back and does the best elderly engine work on
the West coast.

OK, now we
are on the correct coast, please reply to the list so I know
also. I had
the address of someone in San Diego who has done pre-war
before but that was about 10 years ago and not even sure he is still around,
trying to get his name/number back, its on a very old IPAQ handheld that is
not working right now :( He was quite elderly then, I have to assume he is
not working anymore as he would be in his 90s now. Too bad too because he
had made some jigs for the Singer motor.
But San Fran is close enough, if
there is someone up there I can take my motor up there.
