How big a job is replacing the power brake unit on a '56 400?

Relatively easy, not too involved; the instructions in the shop manual for removal are straight forward, perhaps 1 hr or less to remove the unit. Probably the part requiring the most dexterity is reconnecting the hydraulic lines to the front of the master cylinder on reinstallation.
