1989 Mustang GT Valve Cover Gaskets
I need to replace my valve cover gaskets on my 1989 5.0 - they're leaking bad. My neighbor says it will take about 45 minutes. Another guy says the driver's side will take about 30 minutes, but the passenger side will take about 1.5 hours - so the total job is about 2 hours. My mechanic says it's about a 5 hour job for his shop to do it, and it will cost me about $450.
I've changed the gaskets on a 1969 390 V-8 years ago, but nothing since. I'd like to just order the gaskets/kit online and do it myself....what's the consensus - is this closer to a 1 hour do-it-yourself job, or a 5 hour $450 job like the mechanic quoted me (the mechanic said they'll do a better job because they'll "clean" everything...?).
