ANYONE in or around Pensacola. NEED HELP!Broke a valve!!

looks like the injector WASN'T the problem. Took of the valve cover in prep for replacing the injector and discovered that the front valve, #1 cyl, has broken off right at the very top, just above the "bottom" keeper groove. She still runs, like crap, but runs. I removed the rocker and the spring just lifted off..valve hasn't moved and appears stuck tight in the top-most position. Hopefully this means it didn't fork up the piston. I need to know if any member out there happens to live in the generall area who can perhaps help me fix my beastie(ie some place to park her and lend a hand and some expertise)I have most basic hand tools and at least some money available to pay for parts and your help/space rent etc but this is my "bread and butter" and need to get her fixed quick but with limited funds, I can't afford these "shop" rates. Any help..Please?? Call me Howard at 843-441-7340 (BTW she's an '03 E550, 20' box truck)
Got another question perhaps someone can helpwith. Since #1 is dead, but it still runs(like schyt, but runs) to keep from pushing fuel out the pipe, I'm thinking on unplugging the injector and pulling oout the push rods until I can find a place to fix this. Any thoughts on this(broken valve in in there TIGHT! but doesn't appear to be "down" in the cylinder. (its the very front valve)
