Need to fix the farm truck bad. If anyone knows of a 243 engine for a pickup in good condition please let me know. Can't find one and the one in it now is shot. Thanks.

I'm working on a project that is going to develop some smartphone apps aimed at assisting farmers with their environmental management (especially manure management). Are there any apps you wish you had to help you identify management actions, keep records, find educational videos/publications etc. All sorts of animal ag ideas are welcomed...I want to be sure these apps are something that people really can use. Thanks!
