I figure on putting in the oil pump kit while I'm in there. Anything else I should consider? Thanks!

Miles' write-up gives a way to eyeball the tension, rather than using a tool. But it's easy enough to jury rig one up. I took a piece of steel plate (actually the square cover to an electrical box) and drilled four holes to match up the holes in the camshaft gear. Four short bolts mounted in those holes, to engage the camshaft gear. Then another hole in the center of the plate; this holds a large bolt which I use the torque wrench on. Total cost about $2, and it works flawlessly. Other guys here have mentioned similar homemade tools.
