one more thing, replace the water pump while your there. unless it has recently been replaced of course. Nothing like going back in there a month later like I had to do.

I'm in total agreement with Sonoma. I was going after a possible issue.

When you pull the ps pump for that leg of the mount, the torque axis motor mount, etc to get to that pulley.. do the waterpump.

I'd say 3 hours is about right if you haven't pulled it all before. Especially since we all know taking a little extra time and doing things right is the only way to go.
