Default What would be a fair price??

I received a bravo 1 drive upper that was stuck in forward gear. ( The owner put the drive in gear while the engine was turning 2000 RPM's ) Anyway, I was able to separate the gear and clutch. I burnished the gears, cleaned all upper end parts, re lubed and re assembled the upper using all new o-rings. What would a fair price be to charge for this type of work? (Side note: I build gear boxes for turbine engines for a living. I am very familiar with bearings and gear wear and pattern matching etc. I have built many many bravo drives before, just not for hire. ) I have five hours of labor invested and a few consumable materials.

I do all my own tricks too, but sometimes just have to take it to someone. I would be happy to pay $500 for that service.

Thanks, I was thinking 500 to 600 would be right but wanted to check.
