    Hello and welcome :)
    as said above do it institute,
    it requires special tools to hold the timing chain and retime the pump if you remove it, and if you are going that deep best to fit a refurbed pump

    Just make sure you clearly mark up the top housing civer and that it goes back in exactly the same place, on my guide I marked it with yellow paint but it didn't come out in the photo for some reason.
    Good luck

    Have a good look to see where its leaking before you start, if its just the top cover its really easy but if its the next join down then thats the one you need to replace very accurately
