Cam removal

I need to remove the cam on the right and send it in for reconditioning and I would like some help. I only want to remove the necessary parts to get this done as I am not ready for a rebuild.

I need to replace a rocker also. Can I remove the cam after removing the cover and sprocket? How does the rocker come out? Do I need to remove the cam housing or will the cam come out after loosening the rocker adjustments?
I see a hex bold in the rocker shaft. Does that hold it in somehow?

I have Wayne's book but it is setup for a whole rebuild and I want to remove minimum of parts if possible.

You can lower the back of the motor down about 6" onto a jackstand and do it very easily while in the car.
If you like removing the motor and transaxle and have a place to put it then do that.

Remove the muffler and rear motormount crossbar, then the chain case cover.
After removing all the rocker arms and the chain sprocket and cam thrustplate and shims the cam will slide right out

Ok well I already removed the engine thinking I needed to do that. Oh well..
So how do the rockers come out? I can't see yet how the rocker shafts are held in place.

I have the book. I see now that more is covered in the assembly section because I didn't see it in the tear down section.

Thanks
