I'd say the yard was more than fair. Haul and launch around here for a Cat 30 would be $300 or so, $100 in parts. Sounds like they didn't charge much for labor. This is one job that's a real pain on a C30 - Caleb's right about the contortions. Access to work on the engine is great, acess to the stuffing box is a bear. Mine was also seized and it was impossible to get a wrench on it. Replacement makes a LOT of sense.

Sounds like you've got a good yard.
