Re: 97 2.2 cylinder head change - how many hours?
I thought 10 hours seemed to be a little out there. I think I will get the mechanic to commit to a price first. I was thinking about $250.00 max as he runs a shop from his home and deals in cash.
I had to take the valve cover off today to identify the casting number ( 391 ) and was thinking there is tons of room to work and no air cond lines, very straight forward. Dont want to over pay as the parts are kinda expensive to begin with.
Besides this engine is spotless and would be a pleasure to work on. It's so clean I figure he should pay me for the honour of working on it.
