Default 2005 Honda Odyssey timing belt change price?

So my dad's friend has a 2005 Honda Odyssey that needs a full timing belt service: timing belt, idler, tensioner and water pump. He wants to know how much I would charge to do it for him. I can get all the parts including the serpentine belt for $165 so how much should I charge for labor?

I tried looking up prices but most of them refer to dealerships who charge anywhere from $500-1200 for this job. I don't know what a local mechanic would charge either... I'm not a certified mechanic but I've done my fair share of timing belt jobs and full engine rebuilds (from the block up).

$300 would be fair if you are experienced in it. If you are not, $200. It would be a shame if you did it and the vehicle never ran again.

500-650 sounds about fair. Not sure how you're able to get all of those parts for $165 ( the water pump alone is more than that), but a timing belt service also includes seals as well. If you've never done it or don't know how, have a mechanic do it. These are interference engines and you could be looking at a major repair if not done correctly.
