Well, any number of people can offer some assistance. However no one can guess where your friend might reside so a dealer can be recommended. Likely the best bet is look in his local yellow pages under small engine repair or go online to Simplicity with his zip code for the dealer network. As with anything though a repair is only as good as those who work on it. Just because someone is a dealer doesn't mean they will be qualified to work on these tractors or want to work on them with this age. My 2 cents worth.

Letting the clutch out (engaging) will tend to load the engine some as it is then driving the hydrostat. Makes quite a difference especially when cranking.
