Model T labor charges

Post by Rich Eagle » Wed Jan 08, 2020 3:02 pm

This was on the shelf and I thought it might be interesting to those who haven't seen one. Fordors were mentioned so it may be mid 20s.

I will guess at the labor rate being $3 per hour and it was split 50/50 with the mechanic. :?

Mr. Eagle,

Thank you for posting your labor fees. You should be receiving my engine and transmission very soon and enclosed in an envelope in the crate is the $25 labor fee. If you find the need to rebuild the carburetor I will send the extra $0.75.

According to Mr. Ford's time allotted for the rebuild I should be expecting my engine back by the weekend. I will however allow one extra day should it be necessary to have the carburetor rebuilt for the additional $0.75!

Thanks for sending the engine. I think I can use it in the next project.
In the mean time here are pages 2 and 3. I surprised at the interest.

The present value of $25 in 1925 is $367.44
If there is any skilled re-builder out there who will rebuild my T's engine (even though it doesn't need it) for $367.44, I will hire you.

I was looking for a 3 ring binder that I have that is full of original repair orders since I read this post, I finally found it. Here are just 2 showing parts and labor charges.

Each one also has the separate handwritten Parts Requisition that was done by the mechanic. The one above seems to have been a major front axle catastrophe.
