Yeah, that's always an exciting job. Especially with aftermarket exhaust. I always figure a 12-pack per engine. Just a rule of thumb though.

I'm with Ted,
It takes longer to pull the cowlings off than to change the plugs.

I can think of a lot of ways that Eggbeaters are better Like you can pull a power head in about a hour with out a lift.
