Your re-wording didn't change the question or the answer. If you know what you are doing, you can do it in a couple of hours. If you don't know what you are doing, as long as you have the manual you can do it in a weekend.

Yes, give yourself the whole weekend.

what would you like to hear? We can tell you anything you want !:p

you atleast need a torque wrench & bearing puller.

the new bearings & crank can be assembled with out a press with cold/hot expansion if you know what your doing.

if you have the cases split already You'll need a torque wrench and a BBQ (keep it at or below 200F) to assemble it all - that's about it. Why are you replacing the cases - did they crack?

It takes me about 3-4 hours to put together a typical 2 stroke from bench to break in.

yeah the rod broke which then came around and cracked the lower part of the case...everything is apart(split) cleaning what i can...then ordering rest of the parts...

Just take your time and clean everything thoroughly. Haste makes waste.

yeah the rod broke
Really? That's very unusual for a two-stroke. It's far more common to hear of rods snapping on four-strokes.

yeah its a pretty destroyed engine...someone wasnt carefull..looks like a lower rod bearing might have went resulting in the rod breaking resulting in the broken rod to travel around with the crank destrying the bottom of the case and smashing the exhaust side of the cylinder(the part of cylinder that enters case)
