I sure could use some help.. NORTH EAST TN.

Guys a while back i got run over by a large farm tractor. I really could use some help installing a 350 and 350 trans in my 1972 c10. Engine is complete. Just get it in and hooked up, hood rad etc back on etc. I have a shop, truck is on ramps level etc. I have a reman p/s box i,d like to install. All needed tools, large a-frame crane and compressor. The only thing i,am short is 2 legs to stand on as i,am wheel chair bound. I live in n.e. Tn. Kingsport .to be exact. I,ll pay you. Its my d/d and i really need it. I hate to impose / ask etc. But i,am up against it. If you could help i,ll do my best for you in return.
Regards
bob

Man, if I were not a state and a half away I'd round up another pair of hands and lend you a hand. Very sorry to hear of your troubles and I hope some locals can get you fixed up soon.

Re: I sure could use some help

Do you have a shop, and a Cherry Picker?
Are there any time constraints?
Iím down south of Newport, but I donít currently have a shop to work in.
Next week I start pouring the slab for my new Shop.

That really hurts doesn't it? I did the same thing 2-1/2 years ago on fathers day weekend. Luckily for me I was driving my B series Kubota which doesn't weigh all that much but messed my left leg up for about 3 months. Didn't break anything but had massive tissue damage and bruising. Get well. If I were closer I'd swing by and get that finished for ya.

Re: I sure could use some help

Hopefully there are some TN guys out there that can help you out. I know I'd be there if I was close enough. Maybe a board member w/some younger kids?

It would be a great teaching moment to help someone out.

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.

Re: I sure could use some help

I hope you can find help quickly, if I was near by I would do it for free just to help another truck guy out.

More important than finding help, I wish you the best of luck in continued recovery and health.

If I were in your local I would be there, spot on.

Someone is going to be a part of your new life real soon....Sucks to hear about the dilema, yet as you know a new door will open again.

KEEP THE FAITH! everything else comes and goes!

Re: I sure could use some help

Man, where are all the members from that corner of TN/VA/KY? Back when I joined here there was quite a gathering from that area and they seemed to be well acquainted, got together on occasion, and I'd think they'd do a thing like this in a jiffy. I wish I were closer or even able to travel down one weekend soon. My transportation situation is limited to local these days.

Re: I sure could use some help

Post up some pictures of what your working on/with , Is it in a garage , Sitting on concrete ? Do you have all the needed correct hardware ready to go ? vacuum lines/hoses/belts , Engine lift / floor jacks What all do you need done ? just drop it in or running ready to go ? I'd like to see you get it done but I can't spend days digging thru cans and boxes looking for parts and hardware ?

Re: I sure could use some help

Come on guys. Lets go and make it a weekend to help out this guy. I'll travel up there if some other guys can come up. If we all team up together we can get it done. It will be like a Red neck Garage squad if somebody would video tape us.

Re: I sure could use some help

I am so sorry for the situation you are in. I hope you are able to recover?

I myself have 2 destroyed shoulders and understand needing to get help, it is not easy to ask for help. I wish I was closer I would help as much as I could. Good luck I hope you find your help, soon!

Re: I sure could use some help

Come on guys, you mean to tell me that there is no one close enough to help this member out, If I wasn't 80 years old and living in Idaho I would be there in the morning. He says he has a lift, garage, all he is asking is 5 or 6 hours of your time, surly some of you could spare some time to a fellow member who needs help.

Re: I sure could use some help

Any idea what weekend would work for a group? Getting close to the holidays so time is getting tight. I am about three hours away but could make the trip if we could get someone closer to coordinate a day for people to show up.
