With my Dad's help I started working on engines about 65 years ago. With a proper set of tools and good shop manuals one can do almost anything needed, short of bearing presses. Nice gesture to give him some business but when he said "if you knew anything about obms you would know screws get stripped, I have stripped hundreds of them in my 35 years....." you had to know you went to the wrong place. Kind of like taking your car with a problem to an American made car dealer and being told "It is OK, they all do that"
When you do it yourself you know it is done right.
