They range anywhere from a 1/2 hour to 2 hours. Which ones are you replacing and I can send you information on replacing it?

For engine support am I supporting it from the bottom with a board and a heavy jack or with an engine sling or cherry picker
Expert:  brownjeff replied 6 years ago.

Yes, that will work for the engine support. Either way is fine.
