1998 CHEVY PRIZM LABOR TIME

Air Conditioning problem
1998 Chevy Prizm 94000 miles

My AC compressor went & my mechanic didn't seem interested in calling around for prices on a rebuilt which is all I can afford. So I ordered it myself but now am concerned that he will sock me with the labor charge since he won't make anything on the part. I have no idea how long this job could take. He's very experienced (30 years). I have no idea whether a reasonable time would be 2 hours or 6. Please give me some idea. I have reason to believe that he hasn't always been totally honest, but I'm at his mercy. I have no one else to ask. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

There is lots of info here but I don't see the answer to my question which was " what would be the approximate labor TIME to replace the AC compressor by an experienced mechanic"?

It takes an hour to remove and replace the compressor by Mit1 time/labor and there's other things involved-like evacuating/charging it depends who you dealing with, once again it varies with location
