I mean 40 hours in 4 days leaves a lot of extra time. it only takes a 3-7 hours to pull an engine and another 3-10 hours to put one back in and change fluids. That's 3 days of spare time on your light schedule.

In my experience, you still have 2-3 days before starting any serious wrenching for a weekend wheeling adventure.

Buncha Nervous Nellies out there....

Or like my experiences when I let my buddies "help" me, they don't know how to follow a torque spec and my tire comes off my truck while driving. We did some wheel bearings and the a##hole didn't torque the spindle nut nearly enough. Spindle nut hacked off the retarded cotter pin and worked itself loose enough to break the hub apart which and my tire came off and tore the knuckle and axle shaft up. Now I torque every bolt myself and use nails instead of cotter pins on spindle nuts (kinda ghetto, but I never want that to happen again). merica

By no means am I skilled....but I would have been there to motivate you. Thank god you wrench naked because so do I and that may have been akward if you didnt. Since you are naked it makes the motivating that much easier. If you slow down or stop working there will be suprise butt sex (but now its not a surprise).

Those kids should be old enough to feed themselves or at least call and order pizza.
