I've done several, Bob.  There's a good description of the process in the
Bentley for the 200q20v.  I've gotten seal kits from Blau, TPC and Force 5.
 If you just take the mushroom caps out and replace those seals, you
probably will have a leak soon from the place where the pump body splits in
half.  I find that the seals all tend to get hard and lose their sealing
capacity at more or less the same time.
