I don't have acess to flat rate here but i am sure someone does, wait a little while for an answer. The reason i ask about the eng. is for other techs.who may have that info. I will say this, a long time! Prob. 14 hrs. Ac,&ps i am sure. Emission equip.air pump w/tubes. Bolts in exhaust rusted,, air tube(if equiped) rusted and prob. will break. Changed my mind i would do this job by the clock only forget the flat rate may take a week, in a van!

For whom? you? a technician? or some shadetree mechanic? If you already have the new/rebuilt head, it should take a seasoned technician ten hours unless there are other issues.
