I've never done it before, but it at least sounds reasonably straightforward to me.
that one needed a new stator
dealer wanted a grand to investigate (just to check if it was bad)

the Nissan, the one that broke the chain
it needed a new motor (top end at least)
I scoped one of the holes, it had valve damage
you could hear that it had lost compression
