These engines are pretty easy to work on. I am about to do my 12K valve check and adjustment next week.
Not worried about it at all. Read both the factory and Haynes manuals. Very straight forward service.
I spent about $300-350 on items needed for the service.
Oil, Engine assembly lube, various gaskets and o-rings, spark plugs, spark plug socket, feeler gauges, micrometer, cable luber, cable lube, shim kit from HotCams, and an OBDII cable.
Next time I need to do the service, I will already have all the necessary stuff. So it is a good investment in my eyes.
