R&R Engine

I have a 1978 P 30 paper truck and I cannot find out what the labor hours would be for complete R&R of the engine it is a 292 cid.I do know that it has to come out through the side sliding door. Can anyone help? Thank You Robert relewisenterprises@comcast.net

Are you looking for a labor book rate that a mechanic would charge, or a reasonable amount of time that a shadetree mechanic would take?

It will be hard to locate a book listing for a 1978 commercial truck. A skilled mechanic would have to look it over and give you an estimate. A skilled older mechanic that may have worked on these 292’s would be able to accurately price the whole deal.

Also, is R&R remove and replace, or remove and rebuild?
