I know just what you are saying Matt. Do you know the 'I&T' manuals? the ones with the red and cream covers? Alot of people curse then, but all I ever needed to know is in them.
I have beening buying them since I started farming, one can cover several models.
When working on your own stuff, on a budget- or no budget, you have to do as much as you can at home however possible, or go out of business. My trick was to get who ever knew how to tackle the job to help, treat him like a prince, watch, study, learn, remember...repeat as needed! The last few years I tackle EVERYTHING myself, as much as possible anyway.
My lathe is too small to turn the 202's crankshaft, so I bring it to a $100 an hour'professional'... megabucks later- it came out fine. The other day I brought him the head to press out the valve stem guides... he wanted all the valve parts there even though he wasn't going to install them.... HE loses the bag with the tiny valve stem pins.... HE wants to charge ME ten bucks to replace them.... ha I say!
Well, wasn't exactly "ha".... So I had to order more stuff from YT here anyway, so for $1.43, replacements are on their way. I don't need to be ripped of by 'professionals' who are already charging me by the minute. Hey, there are lots of rebuilds to watch on you tube... that's my new hobby... you tube...
BTW, TSC is 'tractor supply corp'.. you don't have those in Canada yet, not the best, not the cheapest, but if you are close to one, and you are in a pinch....
