Half an hour. Head gasket, head, head bolts tightened in correct sequence, then torqued to specs. Valve cover gasket, valve cover. However.......... I personally wouldn't trust something like that. Why was the head off in the first place? Simple enough to put it back. Why didn't the "Mechanic" do that? Not like INS came into the garage and grabbed him while he had the head in his hands....
