Post diesel shops

hey guys this might be good for guys like me and zach thats in the military and new owners or people just moving to ks.post up info on good shops to go to in your area.make sure you consider your recommendations first.ive seen work done very at first it seemed awesome but later it turns out they didnt do something quite right.also if you know of good dealers to take to for work,we all know they arent some of the best places to go but maybe you have had good luck some where.

so im looking for someone to take my truck to in the manhattan/junction city area.willing to drive thirty mins or so to a good place.will be doing most work myself but if i get in a pinch its nice to know i could go some where and trust them.

So far I've done all the work to the rig myself too, but I'd like to find a shop in KC besides the stealership to take it to in an emergency. I can't really think of anything I wouldn't tackle myself right now since all the common things have writeups and info here to replace (glow plugs, injectors, etc) but something may come up.

Fyi-Good cheap parts I found on craigslist.
97 POWERSTROKE PARTS

Shoot, that's better than trying to find a mechanic and paying marked up prices for parts!

You could always ask the guys at the local bus barn to do some work on the side. They work on Internationals all day.

I'd bet the guy who takes care of the school busses in Andover would probably be willing to do something like that.
