First off, head to Draynor Manor, located just north of Draynor Village. Speak to Veronica who will be wandering around just south of the manor, near the entrance.
She explains that she and Ernest, her fiancé, were lost, and Ernest decided to go into the manor to ask for directions That was an hour ago, and Veronica is worried! Tell her that you will help her find Ernest. Continue north along the path until you reach a large building and go inside.
Climb the stairs located directly north of the main entrance, and then climb the nearby Ladder up to the second floor. Talk to Professor Oddenstein, the eccentric-looking scientist in the room, and ask him about Ernest.
The Professor says that he has turned him into a chicken during one of his experiments. Tell him to change him back, and he says that his machine is broken and he needs several parts to get it running again. He needs a Pressure Gauge, a Rubber tube, and an Oil Can.
Pressure Gauge & Rubber Tube
