May I ask you how long it will take to do a changing lower intake gasket, cleaning the intake manifold, heads, and engine block's ridges for RTV sealants, for one person?

and does it require two persons?

Thank you for your advice.

    It takes 3 people 2 to move the engine back and forth and 1 to hold the scraper! How long you been at this one repair? You should be able to do it by yourself! Maybe.

    2 for shaking the engine, 1 for scrapping: I guess that was just a joke!

    I plan to do it myself as seen on some online sites, but like to know how long it will take,
    so I can make my schedule right. please advise!
