army guy needs truck help

ok, sorry in advance for this long post, but here we go. i am about to return from iraq in a few days and i am needing a little help. i just found out that my brother wrecked my truck. a couple months back i bout a 78 bronco from a guy there in houston that needs a little work and i now need to see if anyone knows someone or is interested in fixing it for me. individuals or a shop, whoever. it runs, but needs exhaust put in it and the tranny looked at. exhaust is an easy fix as the headers are on it and muffs are in the back, it just needs the pipe run. the tranny is another story. guy says he rebuilt it himself, put it in, DROVE it to the gas station, filled truck with fuel, then when he started it it wouldn't go into any gears. i am thinking valvebody or missing check-ball, but i haven't seen it so i can't be sure. at any rate, i need to get her roadworthy on the cheap. i know you get what you pay for, but money actually is an issue now with the economy taking a crap and military pay being what it is. the truck is there in houston and i am going to be getting back to ft. polk, la(couple hrs away) in a few days. looking to try and get her fixed within a week or 2 so that when our post-deployment leave comes up i can drive her down to the corpus area to see family. again, sorry for the long post and anyone that can offer any help or point me in a good direction would be greatly appreciated. thanks, john email: [email protected]
