Can somebody remember what effort was needed (personal, hours) to repair/change the clutch of a Centurion tank?

thank you

From memory, a long time ago, take the gearbox out, 45 minutes or so, maybe a little longer, with the clutch supported by either the official support bracket, or alternatively, a tin of compo cheese, attach the clutch lifting sling, unbolt from the main engine and lift it out, up to another 30 minutes in all.

A word of warning, I haven't actually carried out this procedure since 1972, so my memory may not be perfect, hope it helps.

Thank you very much.
It helps of course.
What I was interested in is the dimension in hours,
not the exact number of minutes.
