Started on the distributor side no real issues....
The bolt holding the retaining collar takes a 8mm socket on mine as opposed to 10mm as the write up says.
The shop the car used to go to had used "Persuasion" on the connector piece see pic:

You can see the scratch marks on it. I wrapped soft iron shim around it to pull it out so as not to further gouge the surface.

Ditto for the outer sleeve.

The spline bolt was not going to make an other extraction/insertion.

Now for a question:
What is the purpose of the small seal (red) that goes in the housing ? it is blocked on the distributor side and is mated to the main cam housing on the other. It looks like just a plug would have worked or even no hole there ? or am I missing some thing ?
Any elucidation would be greatly appreciated. Pics below.
