Thanks. I took a look there and found two choices, one for $226, one for $211. (US$)

Mechanic had quoted me $500 (CAN$) for the part, plus 2.5 hours re and re. Actually, for the part I think he's low compared to list.

Hummed and hawed, then said $1000 after taxes and shop supplies.

$1.00 US=$1.55 Canadian.

I've reviewed the Shop Manual instructions.

Trickiest part appears to be making sure the lift curve of the drive flange is at BDC.

Anyone done this procedure that can offer tips?

If I'd known then what I know now...

Hell, I'd probably still have done it anyways.
