Needing help getting 9x13 Gordon press running

Hi all!! I just got my very first press, a 9x13 C&P Gordon and need some advice on getting it up and running—particularly how to clean and de-rust it, where or how to re-cover my rollers (do I need new trucks too?), and just how to use it (yeah I’m that new to this), particularly with photopolymer plates to start (I’ll get into setting type soon after). Where is the best place to buy ink & how can I learn how to mix it? Is there someone near Northumberland (Central) Pennsylvania who may be nearby and could spare some time looking it over and setting it up with me? Lots of love and tons of excitement!! - Emily
