Notes: see comments regarding high mileage. This estimate does not include parts (client supplied), but has included shop charges. Additional charges may be fluids – penetrating solvents, clutch fluid, parts cleaner, as well as machine work or replacement of the flywheel, depending on its condition.

If the flywheel needs to be remove an additional .2 hours is justifiable. An additional .2 is also acceptable if the pilot bearing requires replacement for a total of 7.6 hours.

Some labor guides have the standard times at 6.7 hours, but 7.6 is more common.

Important: when clients supply the parts, repair shops may inflate labor charges to make up for lost profit margins.
