Not a terrible job. Takes me about three hours if all goes well. One important point is to make sure that you replace the belt tensioner pulley if the car still has the original one which can fail. Check the Bentley manual for details. There is a number stamped on the tensioner to help identify it, and a number or letter will have been punched out on the mod-marker on the drivers door if the factory did the mod.
Other than that the job is straight forward. The only really scary thing is if you have the one piece crank pully. The two piece comes apart easily, but the one piece requires a huge wrench to loosen it. Most are the two-piece type.
Lastly, make sure to rotate the engine by hand (wrench) several times to check the crank-cam alighnment. It is critical.
Oh, and buy some "fast orange" hand cleaner it makes clean-up easy
Good Luck!! Jim
