Not sure if this is the right section for this. But I am looking for some references for a good mechanic.

I got an 02 LB7 last spring, and have been to a handful of different shops that have all been huge let downs for small jobs here and there. I've been to dealerships as well as local shops, and have been receiving false diagnosis' from each of them.

My belt was squeaking, one place said it was a fanhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dautomotive&field-keywords=fan bearing and wanted $800, went to another place and they said it was a tension bearing and wanted $500. Took the belt off myself, all the bearingshttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dautomotive&field-keywords=bearings were tight and smooth, just replaced the belt and was good to go. That is the most recent instance..

I like to do most of the work myself, but some stuff I just don't have the knowledge or time to work on it. Was hopping someone in the area would have a good mechanic they could recommend. I am just north of Boston in Woburn, MA.

A few years ago, I had a diesel mechanic that would charge $40 an hour, and I'd help him do the jobs. He has since retired, and am on the look out for someone new/similar. Thanks for all your input in advance!

My friend is a diesel tech at the dealer, pm me and I’ll get you in touch with him if you need anything.

One of the best local non dealer shops I have found is Fagan Gulf on Lexington street in Waltham Ma. They do a lot of truck work, including mine and have never been disappointed.
