    On and average, how long would it take the average person to change: oil pan gasket, timing chain and sprockets, timing chain and water pump gaskets and everything that was involved in doing this?

    You mean to say that if the fan needs 4 bolts, I should put in all 4 bolts,LMAO!!!!

    the motor in the jimmy was screwed up that way too. when I did the first tune up I found ou tthe dist. was only hand tight, and when I did the tranny swap...all those bolts were hand tight too /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif .
    thats why I'm taking my time on the wagon, doing it once and doing it right. (well minus the whole $1200 dana 60 problem,LOL)



    lock washers for everyone!!!!!!

    So basicly a timing chain swap...
    Motor book time is 3.4 hrs. that is what a shop would charge in labor.

    Well, normally i can do it in 3-4 hrs, but i fought this one tooth and nail the whole way...plus having to run to the store to find some bolts to replace the missing ones, finding my damn gear puller, just wasn't a very good day /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
