As for the seals. Since your in there it is a very good idea to change them out.
That way if you get an oil leak later on, you dont beat yourself up for not doing it while you were there.
They are very easy to change out. I got the two camshaft seals and the crankshaft seals from JLEMOND.
Its a good idea to use OEM parts in there, especially on the waterpump.
Besides, the OEM seals are not pricey at all.

Wasn't sure if I should post to this or start new so I figured I'd stay in the original post.
I bought a TB Kit and it too came with Cam seals, crank seal, pulley, tensioner, idler, etc.. I understand the cam seals are behind the sproket but I also rec'd 2 thin O-rings about 1.5" in diameter. I have a Haynes and it doesn't show where these may go. The parts are also listed as Cam seals. Any clue?
If I am able to hold the cam drive sprocket with a band wrench and loosen / tighten the sprocket bolt , it is necessary to remove the valve covers if I keep things in time and my VC gaskets are not leaking?
I appreciate any info you can provide.
