Not for just labor... Ive heard of shops doing that job with OEM parts for $500 out the door. $400 would be a better deal, thats nearly $100/hour

If you are just paying the labor, I wouldn't pay a penny more than $300

I see your profile says NY. Labor rates vary by a tremendous amount based on location. Finch & Jon are not in your part of the country.

No valve adjustment is needed after those seals are changed. You can get a valve cover gasket set (1 VC gasket and 4 spark plug tubs seals) for $20 and do it yourself for free.

Yes, there is a 2nd set of seals, farther down in the spark plug tubes.Yes, you have to remove thevalve rocker assemblies to replace them. Whether THAT lower set is leaking is where you have to trust him (or not).

Id get a valve cover gasket set. It should come with both upper& lower seals (lower ones are thinner, like O-rings). Replace the gasket & upper seals & watch to see if the leaking stops.
