I would not have reccomended this for the beginer mechanic either.... This can become tedious if you have never done this before and have no idea what you are getting into...

And it always comes in handy to have a Servive manual, as a Haynes or Ciltons will be a bit shady on the diffrent models of the 3800 engine.... They may have a pic or diagram for a Vin C, L, 1, K or even a 3.8 Vin 3.... So its not always on the money...

If you know what you are doing the timming set and interupter can be replaced in a matter of hours..

It took me several afternoons and evenings to replace every gasket but the head gaskets last summer. The lower intake gaskets were just a fraction of the time.

An SE timing cover will come off easier than an L67, because I don't think you have to remove the accessory bracket, which can take a while.
