So it looks like at 178k I'm going to be changing the water pump. My t belt was done at 120k with a continental kit.

I'm going to put a new one in anyway so this belt will see the end of the engine. Should I mess with camshaft and crankshaft seals now, or ignore and wait for my engine build that I plan on?

Its a lot of extra work and risk to change the crank and camshaft seals, so if they aren't leaking/seeping I say don't fix what isn't broken. The paranoid types here will tell you that they MUST be changed, but that's BS since I've seen a lot of engines make it to the quarter million mile point without leaky seals so why risk if if you don't need to?

Understood and my thoughts too. This is gonna be the 250k timing belt for this engine lol. I'm building another that I plan to put the Kapelhenke block guard in
