Exclamation A little help please...

Got a 7.3 that ate her pigs... Low compression in five of eight, turbo has a bit of excessive end play, etc. Looking for a machine shop in Northeastern Iowa/ Southeastern Minnesota machine shop to overhaul the heads, and check the block before I put it back together. Also the best place to get the parts to put it back together. Any help would be great.
