You are getting the shaft. All machining labor including assembly, I have $5,622 in my 392 hemi, (I deducted welding on head). The shop I used builds race engines and highly qualified. His labor price included disassembling the rocker shafts and rebuilding w/ new hard chrome shafts.
That said you need to come out of this whole. You might get a written quote from another reputable shop, that he would know. With that in hand I would use that to negotiate. with him. If he is not cooperative, I would not hesitate to use the “small claims court” approach.
