Estimated time to fix/change/rebuild/modify reference

Recommended Posts

It would be nice to have a reference of the estimated labour time it 'roughly' takes to do maintenance/repairs/replacements/modifications for some of the Esprit V8 specific tasks. 

It would help to budget for future maintenance/modifications and check invoices. I would like to know the labour for the following tasks : timing belts - engine rebuild - gearbox rebuild - new clutch - new radiator - new condensors - new brake discs and pads -  new suspension - new fuel tanks - new exhaust.

A rough estimate/range in hours is sufficient.
