Replacing 5KCSTQ Timing Belt, Have Question...

I am going to replace the timing belt on my '86 5KCSTQ using the procedure
that I found in the archives.  I am also going to replace the o-ring in the
waterpump.  However, when I scouted around at a few mechanics in the Chicago
area, they recommended replacing the camshaft seal also and the intermediate
shaft seal.  This car doesn't have an intermediate shaft...does it?  I don't
see any mention of one in the Bentley.  

Also, the Bentley procedure for removing the camshaft seal requires the
special puller tool.  Can this seal be removed/inserted safely without the
puller?  Anyone done this before?

Thanks in advance
