I have 87 Samurai...Oil is coming out from behind the timing belt cover... I think it is the front crank seal... How hard is that to change...

I would change timing belt and seals....
1. Would I need to remove the radiator to get to the crank
2. Any special tools to remove the belt cog from crank
3. How do I keep everything lined up for replacement

Any input would be greatly appreciated....

It is not hard just did it on mine. You will have to remove the radiator to use an impact on belt cog or if you want to leave the radiator in get a ratchet and a breaker bar and wedge it under the frame rail and bump the ignition to get the bolt lose. My seal came right out but if yours does not get a self tapper and run it in just enough to grab the old seal and pull it out. Then set everything to top dead center and put your new timing belt on.
