87 Samurai engine tune up in Colorado?

hello - I just purchased my first samurai... 87 tintop. been sitting in a field for a number of years. Was able to get it to fire up briely with ether and a jumped battery. But I am not much of an engine guy. I was wondering if someone in colorado could recomend a mechanic to tune up the engine and look everything over. I would love a mobile mechanic since its not running.... but I could flatbed trailer it down to Denver somewhere if needed.

I am building a "snowcat" of sorts. It will have UTV snow tracks so we can access our cabin in winter. It stays up at the property and is just used to go up the road which is unmaintained in winter. So, I need it to be fairly reliable, but I am trying to keep this a low budget project.

I plan to do a propane kit on since its a carb model zuk to compensate for altitude (cabin at 11,200 feet really robs you of power). Also planning on locking diffs and probably a lift of some sort.
Thank you
