DFW "Good Samaritan" Inquiry
For those of us in the DFW area:
I know of a young lady, 19 years old, who bought a '66/200/3-spd earlier this year. She's head-over-heels in love with it, but has had some recent maintenance setbacks and can't afford repairs.
She reports "rear oil seal is leaking badly onto my exhaust and trying to blow, she's actually building enough oil pressure to pop my cap off, ignition finally gave out and keeps draining batteries on me, gear shifter is acting up, brakes need reworked again and I'm constantly losing traction even on slow braking".
I'm guessing that last bit means her brakes are locking up as soon as she touches the pedal.
I'm trying to gage if there are any VMF folks interested in offering technical skills and relevant parts to help her get back on the road. If there is interest, then I'll get back with her and relay our support. If there isn't much interest, then I'll just let sleeping dogs lie.
