"New" truck, looking for mechanic suggestion


I just bought a 1990 F250 7.3 5 speed.

It has a slight injector pump leak, but runs and drives really nice.

The seller included a new IP in the sale, but it needs to be installed.
I'm confident that I could do the mechanical installation, but have a number of other projects that may get priority over this, but don't want to drive it too long with it leaking fuel.

My bigger concern is that I don't have the equipment to set the timing.

I live in Lexington. Anyone have a good mechanic recommendation that would be local to Lexington? I work in Greensboro near 40/68 interchange so somewhere near t hat would work as well.

I know one in StonyPoint that is an ace on early Strokes, but I don't know how good he is on IDI's, plus it's pretty far from you.
