In that case... Lets look through the time estimate for the car owner who does the work for him or herself.... Hmmmm lets see, oh wait whats this in the end... wow a chapter on time subtractions for interuptions.... LMAO... Neighbors, kids and phone calls, subtract 1.5 hours....

I happen to overbuy occaisionally. Each of my cordless phones have the built in speaker phone.

JR'* you just busting on my nearly 6 hours or serious that I made decent time...I think that isn't too great for valve covers. I did enjoy working on it much more than the few months I had that Honda.

Did hoses on the Honda, bought the correct too for removing the clamps after I healed up from that project.

good job on the replacement. I need to do that to the red car just to try and save some oil that is left in it and if I plan on selling it as a whole. I also need a new phone as mine officially died. Any suggestions bill?

Just aying with all the interuptions you made great time.... Now you need to subtract for all of the time the interuptions used.... lol

I have never done the valve cover gaskets on the 95... The 91 was easy...

Took me 10 minutes to put the hub assembly on the 91( air tools are awsome ).... Taken me 7 months to figure out where all the leaks were in my car, and it seems like its taking longer to repair them...LMAO
