as well, how much more work to replace the oil seal on the oil pump if I decide to do it? I am doing the water pump and the idlers from parts I ordered from FCP GROTON...under 300 USD delivered for:

but just how do you manage to set the correct torc on the pulley when you get it all back together
What kind of transmission do you have? If it's an automatic I believe you can use the trick mentioned in this writeup:

If it's a manual you can leave the transmission in 5th gear. As added insurance when I did it, my son sat in the car and applied the brakes while I torqued the crank pully nut.

There is no seal per se on the oil pump (or has it changed since my '95?!!). It is a good idea to take the oil pump off to check the screws holding the backing plate to the pump body--use loctite and re-tighten them if loose. Then re-install with a new o-ring and the proper sealant.
The main crank seal is right there in the middle of the oil pump. If you need to replace it I believe they recommend doing it after the pump has been reinstalled.

I'm not sure how I got it off exactly at the time, chain grips or something like that. Pain in the butt if I remember correctly, but it came off.
