The kit someone posted a photo of is just to reseal the timing box covers, not all the timing box gaskets.

Subscribed. I need to do my Timing chain gaskets as well. Does anyone have a good write up on this?

With the motor mounts and engine carrier removed, youĺll need to support the engine with stands. You can safely lower the engine an inch or so.
Btw, no need to remove rear bumper for this job.

Do you guys like to apply a bead of Loctite on the gasket like this before reinstalling? (pic courtesy of Jackal)

most of the shop manuals will state that the gaskets do not need any sealant....I started using Dow Corning 111 to coat the O-ring gaskets, to help w/ the integrity of the rubber and sealing...I used it when changing out the gaskets in my 964 and 993 timing chain covers...had no issues with leaks...
