Just those two are all necessary - check timing chain slop as long as you're in there... ( once the flywheel's off, you're about half way there to what's necessary to replace the chain - if it needs it)

Also, while it's open, use a telescoping magnet to look for any metal pieces from the old one-way down in the sump.

On assembly, loctite the woodruffe key into the crank shaft groove, this will help a lot when installing the flywheel which usually try to pull themselves in when you are attempting to slide it onto the crank.............

Do you have an impact driver (one that you hit with a hammer). You may prefer it to remove the screws that hold the clutch part to the flywheel. I used that rather than an air-impact because I didn't want to break anything or the screws. I have used them on phillips head screws before for both tightening and loosening in that style application. Just a preference of mine.

You can find them at hardware stores for about $15 for the set and just put whatever bit into it you need. Saves alot of frustration when removing stripping screws too.

Yea you should be able too. You need a 3 bolt puller. You will probably have to go to the hardware store to buy the right ones.

Do not use a jaw style puller you can / will bend the flywheel. Do you have a 3/4 electric or air impact?
