Ultimately you’ll need to move the wire loom to get an accurate torque on the T-55 bolt that requires 88# torque though.
Thank you for sharing wire loom removal pix.

I'm all set to do the work. I will start with oil pump service.

That's the ticket. Just don't crank those puny bolts down and sheer them off inside the camshaft.

Camshaft tool looks straight forward. I took a while for this beginner.

Now reached the oil pump, gave it a simple green 50/50 mix bath. I can turn the T-30 with stripping for next step.

Is there a special method of cleaning the oil pump?

Just make certain you get all the old gasket material off. I used a dollar store kitchen sink scrubby/yellow foam thing. You don’t want to abrade the surface too much. Other than that just spray it out with brake parts cleaner & blow dry with compressed air if you can. Or dunk it in your simple green solution & let dry.

The paper seal was crisp - crumbled in to pieces. Watching a cleaned pump can be a joy in itself -- a bath in 50/50 mix of simple green.

I agree! When you look at its design & see how it works it is very evident why these pumps are good to 500k & beyond.

Orange cone is a magical tool.
I installed the pump first and then the crankshaft seal using the magical cone.

The four T-30 screws were coated with anaerobic sealant at the screw head.

The slit on the cone is a clue to watch as the seal transfers -- generous lubrication and 2 tries. Here is a set up of Pete Method:
