How long would it take to replace the oil filter housing and the crank case vent valve and return pipe? Both were identified as sources of oil leaks.

Having just done that job today, the oil filter housing profile gasket (it is almost always just the profile gasket and not the entire housing) takes 4.3 hours according to Mitchell flat rate time. The vent valve has some overlap with the housing, add.5 hour.
