Gotta ask... Why? Also gotta say if you have to ask, perhaps you should farm it out.

Get yourself a Chiltons or Haynes manuel, they will give you step by step instructions. It would take forever for my slow assed typing to input that kind of data~~[sm=goodidea.gif]

Man, ditto that (except for the choice of manual -- Chilton's and Haynes are useful only if you have a bird). Better off buying a real shop manual.

I was thinking of something that he could find at Auto Zone. Not many folks are going to shell out a C-note for a proper manuel![sm=bustedsign.gif]

Understood --but poor, wrong, or just incomplete information can cost way more than a c-note. Both those books are notoriously useless, IMO. I've bought them, hoping they'd help with a project or a repair, only to find their information incomplete or seriously wrong. As long as he doesn't start the project with just one of those, but is aware that before a project of this magnitude is begun, a real manual will help a whole bunch.

Easiest method by far: Find a good, solid, experienced mechanic. Write him a big check...
