About 8 hours working total (including instruction time for my son) plus tool runs and such. I got to spend some quality time with my 15 year old son as well. It is pretty cool to have a son who is MAN help instead of boy help (6'2, 185# but then Dad is 6'6 and 295 or so). I have been nursing my transmission for four years (pedal box has a little play, rebuild will be done soon). Anyone waiting or hesitating about a LUK (or similar) conversion one word of advice - go ahead and do it. Pedal effort is cut to less than half, engagement is a couple inches off the floor instead of 1/2" into the floor mat. My only problem now is I have no excuse for Lovely Wife not to drive the truck. She tried it out this evening (she is one of the best drivers of any gender I have ever met) and was impressed. First time in 100,000 miles anyone but me has driven the truck even an inch.

Nobody outside the family drives her still though. I am more than happy to lend a truck and a driver, just like I am more than happy to lend tools along with the mechanic.

I can't say that I've measured it, but the difference is truly night and day. The SBC Con-O pedal effort feels like the one in my stock 1970 VW Bug! Cheers!
