no problem Mike...that's what forums are all about..I knew nothing about diggin into vehicles til I got my truck..just oil an coolant changes an brakes.. after i got my truck i was all over forums seein what others have done to their trucks and readin how to's.. now I've learned how to rip into our hemi's and have done over 25 cam/head installs. Valve body's aren't too hard to change..but can be messy if you don't watch what you're doin, tq vertors are time consuming to change, especially if you don't have the right tools (tranny jack is a must)... i haven't done gears cuz I don't know about the shimming stuff and adjustments needed to do it right. pulleys are easy to do...

in terms of how hard or easy it is to change stuff... the easiest to change are any of the pulleys, followed by the vb, then tq vertor, then heads...
