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.February 7, 2013 at 3:45 am #28712
