You're in for teh long haul my friend.  No easy way to do the WP or even see the darn thing.
The timing belt and water pump should always be replaced together along with the idler pulley.
For a first timer I would budget a weekend (15 hours?)
Of course I am a bit anal and like to clean everything real good.  Somene with experience could probably do it in 4-5 hours.
I prefer to take everything out of the way too.
There are some good tips in the tb procedure at www.20v.org (who wrote that great procedure anyway??)
www.thepartsconnection.com for parts.  Should cost about $50-$70 in parts.
Good luck,
Dave K.
