Try a guitar repair shop... they MAY have salvaged parts from another damaged tuner.

How do you change your chord set-up on an autoharp and is there any reason not to set it up like a piano keyboard (C-D-E-F-G-A-B)? Thanks in advance.

An autoharp makes chords by muting all the strings except those that make the chord. There would be 2 ways to change the chord structure. 1) retune the strings knowing which ones will be muted by each key so that the result is another but valid chord or 2) make your own "keys" so that they mute different strings.
The tuning of an autoharp is selected to allow you to play songs as long as they are in the right key or two. If you set it "like a piano" as you suggest, you could play those chords but not the chord sequences that make up most songs. Most songs revolve around sequences or intervals such as the popular 1 - 4 - 5 blues progressions. Most music has some predictable progressions and that's why the autoharp is tuned the way it is.
You can always experiment with different and odd tunings but if your goal is to play already written songs, I'd stick with the normal tunings - there are alternates.

Sound post has fallen inside F style Johnson mandolin.

You may be able to help this prob. your self. You will need a set of hemostats about 10 in. long. A nickel sized dental mirror a flexible LED light . First of all unstring it , put strings a side.Next look in side to the under side of the top of your Mandolin .With your lite and mirror you should see a spot where the post was org. placed.Now with your hemostats reinstall the post. Now this is like building a ship in a bottle, but it can be done , but just a little at at time. You need to lift up the whole top. Remember the top did not drope down all at once, nor will you rase it up all at one time. A little eack day untill you have reached a perpendicular point . One more thing, you post fell because the insturmant was to dry.You need to keep it humidfided . Take it to the shower with you. dont get it wet let it soak up the steam, it will help you get the post back up right and it will love you four it. Get a humidfier for it OK

Guitar strings on a mandolin.

Looking at your desired notes the mandolin is standard tuned to gdae.
So three of the four notes are already available, just put the "d" mando strings where the "g" ones would go and the "g" ones where the "D" ones would go the highest is already a "e" and I am sure the "a" would tune up to a "B" with little risk.
You can also
look at string sets made for the madochello or possbly octave mandolin.

Good luck,

The dude.
