alldatadiy should have the shop times, i'd estimate it around 4 hours @$100 an hour (varies by region.. Ive heard california is up around $130 an hour) Its not too difficult of a task to do on your own, if you have some mechanical skill. Are you talking about the seal behind the harmonic balancer or the gasket around the timing cover? 4 hours would be the timing cover gasket, if its just the seal behind the balancer, maybe 45 minutes to an hour.
