Dead in Clear Lake

Last night my truck died in Clear Lake. I am going to get there to have roadside assistance pick me up but I was wondering if anyone knew of a decent shop that could take a look at it on a Saturday? It's a 1999 F350 with the 7.3 diesel.

Unfortunately my experience with that area is to advise a shop NOT to go to... They couldn't figure out a simple trans swap on our F350. Sure, it has a Cummins in it, but the operation is the same as any other time.

Well my only real option was the ford place in Mason City. I think I am going to get an AE soon and start to figure things out myself.

The shop I dealt with was an independent, which dealt more with medium and heavies.Hope they get you straightened out and on the road soon! I did a search of members of several forums or any recommendations of shops in that area, but wasn't having a lot of luck.
