    Hi there any one can guide me where to find labor guide books for labor times on trucks & trailers. Also I am looking for a program (software) for creating work worders and invoices specific for repair shop. I search on www but I can`t find what are the legal requirements for oppening a Truck & trailer repair shop in Ontario in terms of license and permits. Thank`s

    for brake jobs labour rate is 2 to 3.5 hrs per wheel depending on what is needed
    PMA inspection 1.5 hrs
    PMB inspection 2.5 hrs
    PMC inspection 4.0 hrs
    Annual safety inspection is 4.0 hrs
    clutch jobs are normally 8 hrs but on Mack the rate is higher because there is a lot more things to remove I have seen people take 2 to 3 days on them.
    King Pins are 8 to 15 hrs depending on the truck
    engine rebuild is 40 hrs. But I heard dealerships will charge customers 24 hrs
    What I suggest is calling a few dealerships around your area and see what they quote to do certain jobs.
