Who Do You Trust With Your Baby!

I figured that this would be a better place for this thread than in the lounge. Maybe it will give some of the newbies an idea of who's advice is like the gospel (all truth and completely trust worthy)! So, When you have a problem that you can't solve yourself or need answers to hot rodding's little mysterys, Who Do You Trust With Your Baby???????(car, truck,etc.) I hope that no one gets the idea that this thread is meant for kissin' *****... I think that it would be interesting and helpful to know what advice you trust and why!

Me, it would have to be bobcrman! Tons of knowledge and no B.S. This guys knows his Stuff!

If I can't do it and have the want to learn I will do it myself, with the exception of 1 thing.

Automatic transmissions, and I will leave my babys slushbox in the caring hands of the team on staff of:

adtkart, airworld2, and Crosley

As these guys venture where I might be able to go, but fear to tread past the grassy meadow into the darkness ahead.

The other thing I would rather put into someones hands is a carburetor, I had nothing but bad experience with Rochester Dualjets, and Quadrajets.

Just imagine for a minute what could be accomplished in the design room and the possibilities that would come from a team effort put forth by the whole membership of us Hotrodders.

The possibilities would be nearly endless.

trans man?

M&M Dude, get a book and do like I did, take the sucker apart and put it back to gether again. There was nothing wrong with my th350 trans, just and extra one laying around. Bought a book, a GOOD book, and one day I get a rebuild kit and took the trans apart. Covered my work bench with a plastic sheet, old table cloth. Keep everything cleen and watch where you put the parts.

I live in an automotive circle of friends where I don't really need "outside" advice, I can ask a number of different people who have expertise in a number of areas.

My biggest poster respect goes to "DartGT66" on the MoparChat forum. He has more experience with issues that relate to my type of automotive issues than any of my friends. He's invaluable.

He's also in..... FINLAND!!!!
Believe it or not...?

Let's not forget "The Duke of URL", KULTULZ.

His one link that he posts is easily worth a thousand words.

For me I'd have to say DoubleVision. He's helped me out a TON. And really knows his stuff.

But the only other person that I allow to drive my baby is my dad.. NO ONE ELSE GETS NEAR THE DRIVER SEAT. Worst part is gf's begging to drive it... But I can't give in.. Its my baby.. hehe

my baby, i've called my truck, but i was on crack at the time. it's indestructable, i trust just about anybody.
my real baby is my car <--. i dont trust anybody. i wish i could let myself let the foxy h.s. cheerleaders wash it in the summer but i dont because i dont know if they take their watches belts and rings off so i dont let them near it either. at school a group did car washes and i watched as one of the brighter kids got a soaped up sponge and went over a dry dirty car with it without previously even wetting the car. can you believe that that kid just walked into my office just now??? i have a friend who is a mechanic at oak harbor chevrolet and has been forever that i take my cars to (his home) and he is not only cheap but awesomely fast. i took 10 cd's to his house to listen to while he changed the front drive axles on my grand am. he had one done before 3 songs were over!) i have another friend who is just an amazing fabricator and can weld together anything who is gonna weld up my rear gears for me soon. he is the one who put r and r'd my camaro's tranny and put on the headers and "new" used exhaust on it for the grand total of $300. i have another friend that i dont see anymore because he had his crank dealer make a delivery to him at our house, but he helped me, or i helped him put the new valve seals on the camaro last month. of course there's all of you guys as well.

What was I thinking with that one Tazz?
Anyone with a decent amount of mechanical ability could do just that.
I don't have a need to tear into an auto transmission yet, but if the need arose I would do just that, and NO not because you told me to, It's because I would rather learn something new than let the transmision shop hold onto my trans forever because I simply can't afford to have it done. I have rebuilt a couple manual transmissions, and I didn't view those as high on the difficulty range.

I was simply answering the question, and on this site I would find their transmission knowledge indespensable, but as with the rest of us they have their limits too.

I don't think anybody else would WANT to work on my POS even if I did pay them

Seriously though, like M&M said, adtkart, airworld2, and Crosley are all exceptional sources of information, advice and much needed help. Transmissions are the scariest thing to me. Anything else, I feel comfortable getting a book and figureing it out myself, but trannys are where I draw the line. A BIG for the help guys.

I've always found Auto Part to have the best answers to my questions. Oh here's a great example. I posted a question about carburetor selection. I was saved by Auto Parts response of "look a carbs a carb, just pick one" ah smart man. I felt stupid for even asking, I mean everyone knows that all carbs are the same.
