I would say a fair price to pay is at least an hour, That sysyem has four brake lines to it. Its called a "quick take-up" master cylindar. I would recommend a thorough brake inspection before beginning the job though, inspect ALL brake lines, fittings, bleeder screws, flex hoses, linings, so you know what you are in for. Rear brake adjustment, and bleeding the entire system are crucial for a good brake job along with anything else. I would go with a new one, not a rebuilt, and price out wheel cylindars too, the bleeder screws could be seized. Expect to pay a "little " more for a brand new master but remember how many times you are going to hit that pedal. Also a new one will give you a better feel, and confidence on the road. .
