Dont make me get a quote from the machine shop ken!
By the time the OP has carb sprayed, gnarled and wire brushed and still not removed all the gasket,,now he needs glass and more sandpaper (hope he buys wet/dry)...
in materials alone you would break even, and not damage anything!
Getting all the parts off and back together is fine for a noob DIY,
letting a pro do the specialty cleaning and measuring stuff = reasonable even by skinflints standards
