If you want to own a LBC you will have to overcome your fear of grease.
Or you will be spending big bucks and sending your mechanic on vacation

can be done in a morning or evening with simple tools. The hardest part
is bleeding the system after the s/c is re-installed. this require two
people or the use of a mity-vac or ez bleed system.
