Thank you Growlerbear. Good timing on that as well. I just got the seals so I guess I'll give it a shot. The local shop want's to charge $1000 to replace the seals so I'll save some cash if I don't break anything.

Keep us updated...I may need to do a complete rebuild on mine and really want to know how it goes, especially (non)timing wise!

I wimped out. After thinking about it I took it to a mechanic. Since it's my daily driver I can't afford to have it out of commission for a few days while I try to fix the timing or wait for the mechanic to have time to look at it. If I had another car I would have gone for it.

Mine started leaking badly last week from the lower plate next to the engine. I changed the O ring in place. There was very little space but managed to get it back on after slightly shortening the rear bolt. There is a still a very slow leak from the large plug at the rear. I will be ordering the socket from ebay for that one next. Great timing on your post. - Thanks .

you can remove the IP without disturbing the timing. Or, at least, reinstall the IP in exactly the same orientation it was.
Thinking about this... When you remove the pump, do you need to mark the gear's location somehow so the pump's internals are where they were when you removed it, or does it matter? (I'm thinking it must matter...) :-?
