Timing Cover removal in vehicle

Does anyone have any tips or a rough guide on what has to be removed to take the timing cover off with the motor still in the car?

I’m going to be replacing the lifters and have to remove timing cover along with valve covers and cams. I have done valve covers just not the timing cover.

The alldata write up is for lifting the whole motor above the engine bay.

It appears to be a fairly involved job. Mine is leaking and getting worse every season (only 2 here in PNW, wet and dry)
Here are links to video that shows the attack. Good Luck.

Did you guys do this job yet? Thinking of trying to tackle it soon and was curious if you had any tips, or things you ran into that may be helpful to know.

I've watched the videos above and they are pretty good at talking you through the process. It is a big job for sure but doable. I'd prefer to do it inside since the engine will be open for a bit.
