Diesel Mechanics in the Yrk area

Can anyone recommend a good diesel mechanic in the York area?

This is our first diesel and I am thoroughly enjoying it, but I would like to keep a decent mechanic on speed dial if needed.

Here is the pic of our new family hauler/ tow rig:

I do plan on doing much of it myself but I am more worried about when I get stuck on something and know I don't have the tools or the time. Diesels are very new to me... I am competent on gassers for the most part but I am definitely working on a learning curve with the Diesel.

The other problem is I can't leave anything stock for long. The wife is already convinced it is too slow to get off the line. Which opens the door for me LOL.

well the best thing is factory service manual either a book or cd you can find cds and books on ebay all the time. if you have a good basic amount of tools now it shouldn't be a problem buy as you good. lets face it your not going to be doing major service all the time . even if need something most autozone and advance rent tools so another option
