Drop the tranny and replace. Just a few bolts (5 i think) holding it to the motor. Pretty straight forward.

you can typically figure an hour out and an our in. Add an hour for flywheel and other misc. Assuming you dont go to a diesel specific shop (theyre more expensive and not needed for this) most shops are around 80 an hour near me. I cant imagine somebody wouldnt do it for under $300. Where are you located?

It's a stick shift truck right? Cracked flywheel or cracked flexplate? How would the guy know he has a cracked flywheel?

The automatics have some issues with cracking the flexplate, which will cause a horrible rattling sound at idle.

Also 4 wheel drive or 2 wheel drive? If you can replace a 4 wheel drive flywheel in under 3 hours you're a bad mother huncher. It's the same labor as doing a clutch job. I would say anywhere from 4-6 hours is more accurate. Not saying that it will really take someone that long, but that's what a shop is more likely to charge you hour wise.
