Well, after a years delay I finally decided to do this repair.

The triangular gaskets were leaking badly, and some of the epoxy blobs on the cases were cracked/missing and weeping oil as well.

Before I dismantled, I set the engine for TDC using the crank pulley marker. Camshaft keyways are pointing straight up. I put light scratch marks across the end of the cams, and the sprockets to align with the pin that is placed in the sprocket. I figured this would allow me to realign everything exactly upon reassembly.

Everything is proceeding nicely, using Curil-T as an extra measure; used JB weld on the back of the boxes; new gaskets/seals; chain ramps; cleaned all parts; etc. Put in the "new" recommended oil line restrictors as well.

Will I still need to retime the engine once everything is put back together? Engine is still in the car, and access to cylinder #1 is pretty limited.
