yes but you do have to tear some of it down. Rockers are loosened if not taken off to get pushrods out. Intake has to come off to get the lifters out. oil pan comes off to get timing cover off. Then its a matter of pulling the chain off and pulling the cam out and sticking a new one in and putting everything back together.

I agree with above except you can do it without totally pulling the oil pan. Just loosen all the bolts and remove the front 6 or 8 bolts. That will let the pan drop down enough to wiggle the T-cover out.

I agree that the oil pan does not have to come off to remove the timing cover. One other thing - if you're using a mechanical fuel pump, it's got to come off also so that the fuel pump pushrod cam come out.

Good luck
