Well i have oil leak at the back of my engine that i dont have the tools or shop to fix myself. Im also looking into putting a 4 inch lift on my truck, and changing the ram assist power steering to a 78, 79 ford power steering box. I want to do some engine upgrades as well. Right now the truck has a stock 390, id like to change the intake manifold and put a 4 barrel card and headers on it.

I use a private guy from work. He does the work in the garage at his house. Seems to be solid work at a cheaper price than the big guys. He lives in Clearfield.
