Hey Chris, one problem, (unless you re-install the stuff) all the manifolds, ancillaries, cam and head are already off..

If people need a tech doco to assist them during the rebuild them more people will probably need to have how to disassemble the top-end of the engine included too.

Just a thought..

I'm sure that's possible if you have everything there to put back together...however would you say in 10 days straight, or 10 days in man hours... eg. 1 hour a day for 240 days, 2 hours a day for 120 days etc.

My understanding would be from when you pick up the first tool, to finally turning the key at the end.

Do a Steven King version. Just not an Its special! haha.
