I can tell you that when I bought my 90 all trac I called a guy that owns a yard right next to my work. He's got about 10 or more all trac wagons and a couple random camry's/corolla's sitting there so I figured he'd be the person to talk to. Called him up since my Camry had a bad knock and he quoted me $2,000 (or more as he put it) from start to finish including ordering a master rebuild kit like what you're basically asking about at a dealer rate of $1250 plus his fee.
Then I joined here and low and behold, this guy was full of it! Ordered a master rebuild kit from Rock auto for $380/+ship and have the motor out of the car ready for everything.
I guess what i'm getting at is if you want to attempt this yourself it's not hard or expensive. There is PLENTY of info here to get everything done and like I found, many of the most knowledgeable members here will give you their phone numbers to walk you through any trouble you may have. And if you would rather have someone else do it anyway, maybe order your own kit so that's one less thing they can screw you on. Good luck!
