Definitely do all your oil seals: cams and crank. You'll need a seal remover
and a crank holding tool. I made mine: sheetrock screw and some pliers for
the seals, a steel bar about 2" x 12" for the crank tool. :-) Just drill
holes in the "crank tool" in the right spots, a little judicious bending of
it with a sledge hammer, and you'll be all set.

I also recommend completely removing the front end rather than leaving it in
the service position. An extra 15 minutes well spent to make the life of the
backyard mechanic easier.
