    No need to replace the plugs, I would replace the 8 O-rings. I recomend replacing the cam sprocket bolts while others dont. I recomend replacing the head bolts while others dont. Rebuild both oil pumps and replace the timing chain. Be careful to start the threads on the plugs correctly during reassembly!
