78 courier valve guides

I'm looking to buy a 78 courier that smokes on start up, the guy says its probably a valve guide. How hard would it be to replace them and how expensive for everything? I saw online that they are pretty cheap for the guides but just wondering if there would be any hidden costs anywhere.

Or how much it would be to get a machine shop to do it.

Finally got some time to call around and it turns out its pretty cheap. Only 6.50 each if they are punch out type or 10.00 each if they need to be machined out. This is if anybody was wondering thanks for looking.
