Realizing I am a small ( 9 tractors ) collector with limited knowledge of repair...having a very hard time finding someone to come to my shop to help do repairs, get engines going. Auto shops don't have anyone to work on old equipment. Put ads at TSC without any luck. Looking for person who has the time and know how to work on everything from '39 Love to D series AC. Ideas where to look? At 70, gettin' too old to learn everything.

You are so right, Old, I live in the wrong place. I have a super person 120 miles away who does a terrific job, but loading, hauling, and hauling back again is getting to me. I'm gonna keep trying.

Been wracking my brain trying to figure out who I know up your way. Is there anybody at Taylors on 2 Mile Road who wants to make a few extra bucks? Maybe they'd know somebody. That guy who lives there at the round barn just sold out. Maybe he needs a hobby.

How far are you from Tim S, he is a great JD mechanic, but might do others.
