i live in western illinois. my 76 shovel is due for a rebuild and i am at a loss finding a reliable reputable mechanic. i don't mind going some distance to find the right mechanic as long as im sure i wont be dissapointed with the results. the last guy that worked on it left the piston pin keepers off and ended up being the shortest lived rebuild ever. if anyone would like to refer a guy they were pleased with or know of it would help a lot. thanks for the help.
