Being a reasonably competent and knowledgeable mechanic, having the shop tools and equipment on hand, that is my guess as to the shop rate.

Actually, if I owned the shop I would have paid the mechanic(s) about 1/2 the shop rate.

If you want to be really cheap, tell son you will reimburse for parts, then quadruple the price of the parts for his labor. Actually, I wouldn't do that. Just tell the son the tractor is in the will. It's his upon death.
I have an excuse. CRS.

There's a shoulder bolt from McMaster Carr that can be used instead of a pin.
It fits snug in the pressure plate and will tighten up on the clamp on the plate to the input shaft. I see so many install standard 5/16" bolts in place of this pin. I think this hardened shoulder bolt with a locking nut will work.
I was thinking of adding a split collar around the hub on the plate too over the shoulder bolt as an extra clamp.
Then forget about it ever being a problem again.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

on the back of the clutch wheel on the creeper input shaft there is another shear bolt. it is the most common reason the tractor wont move. u mentioned the creeper was popping out of gear. That is a indication of the fork that ingages the the law on the creeper has failed possibly.
