(Tim’s Grandpa) P.O. Box 432 Eitzen, Minnesota 55931

Pictured is sixteen-year-old Tim Moenck with one of his
dad’s engines. Tim built the cart. He had only two wheels so he
made the smaller ones. He bent the rims by heating them in his
grandpa’s forge and did all the welding.

Tim is now restoring a Fairbanks Z that his dad bought. The
piston was stuck but he and his grandpa used a sleeve puller disk
to support the piston and pushed it out the crankshaft end with the
sleeve puller screw anchored to the cylinder head studs.

When Tim is done with the Fairbanks, he will work on an
International model L that he and his dad found by an old well in
the woods. Tim reads his grandpa’s GEM and his dad gets parts
from some of the advertisers.
