<VV> Removal tips for engine timing cover?

Timing cover? Do you mean the rear housing?
Distributor and harmonic balancer have to come off also.
Been awhile since I've done this, but I thought it easiest to lower the rear
of the engine to pull the harmonic balancer. Do NOT use a gear puller or
other tool that pulls on the outside ring of the balancer.
Four 9/16" nuts on the bottom and the 1/2" bolts off and it slides off the
lower studs.

I am seeking advice on removal of the timing cover to fix a chronic leak. I
want to do without removing engine from car. So far I have removed some
tins, turkey roaster, alternator, fuel pump,carbs. What else is needed to
accomplish this process? Thanks for any advice. John Gull in Asheville NC
