I have 104k on my 97 OB and I want to do all the maintenance. This is my list so far...
-timing belt
-2 head gaskets (they are on there way out)
-2 radaitor hoses
-4 front cam(oil) seals
-new tensioner adj.

Any thing else while its all apart?

If your doing the head gaskets , i would suggest you pull the motor out, it makes it so much easier to do the head gaskets than in the car and when it is out replace the (black) oil separator plate with the updated aluminum plate. Also replace the rear main seal would be a good idea

Service the oil pump. (O-ring and back plate screws.) There are articles on this.

You are also getting to an age where the O2 sensor is probably getting weak. You can just let it go if you want.
