I did mine about 6 months ago, it's a good 10 hour job as you have to remove the intake manifold and fuel rails.
I did have a picture tutorial but cannot find it now.
What I would suggest is buy one of the CD ROM manuals on Ebay but as I said it's not an easy job.

Yes, getting the rear water bypass off is a bear because of the lower EGR pipe. I gave up and rebuilt mine in place last December. Still going strong.
Be patient and take your time...... LOTS of time.

That's super. I envy you. I wish I had a friend I could have given $150 to to replace mine last December. It's a royal pain. He may be asking for a few (or more) brews after he's done though.
lol yeahh.. i told him it wasnt gonna be easy and he said yeh he knew that but he'd still do it for 150

For those of you who have tackled starter replacement, you're better men than me! I'm putting a few bucks aside for that job, if it ever happens. I can't do that type of job anymore, just dont have the time or the patients.
I am a retired mechanic, but I would not even try, of coarse I am 75+ now, and my body says NONONO... and I listen..
I REMEMBER the day I would have...
