Ok, well I'm a tech and pull the 116/117 engines to do the top ends. :-)
Reasons? I reseal the lower end as well and find it much easier to get to all the hardware and such. I also do hoses, reseal intake, belts, etc.... Seems to work out pretty well.
BTW, I have a Jeep, Toyota and Dodge truck as well and work on them.
