Installing pitots and pick-up tubes for Speedo

Has anybody ever installed the pitots and pick-up tubes for the speedo's before? Mine are definitely due for replacement and I already have the parts. I've just never done it before and was curious how difficult and long it will take me? Also, if there are some tips from those of you who have dabbled with them before, that would be greatly appreciated!

I upgraded my old MC pickups for the better ones from SkiDim. The hole pattarn is slightly different so I had to drill 2 new holes on each pickup. Then I caulked all of the holes & installed the new pickups while the caulking was still wet. No leaks.... and the new pickups don't clog 1/10th as often!

Just did mine this weekend with the newer style from Ski Dim. Hole pattern is slightly different but mine actually lined up with a little playin around. The seem really nice and are sturdy. It shouldn't take you more than 20 minutes to do the set. Put caulk around them to seal them up.
