Default Timing Belt Replacement Questions

I am currently planning on changing the timing belt on my mom’s 1999 EJ-15 SOHC Subaru Impreza as well as the crankshaft oil seal and the two camshaft oil seals due to a very minor oil leak. Additionally, I am also planning to get the following parts:

• Water pump
• Water pump gasket
• Thermostat
• Thermostat gasket
• Timing belt tensioner (maybe)

I would therefore like the following questions answered:

1) Do I have to drain the engine oil to change the oil seals, especially if I let the vehicle sit overnight in my garage before the work is performed?

2) Is there any special technique that I can use to get the old oil seals out?

3) Is there any way that I can "lock" the 2 camshaft gears in position whilst I am putting back on the new timing belt; bear in mind the engine is a SOHC and not a DOHC?

4) Any special techniques in taking off, as well as putting back on the crankshaft pulley nut/bolt?

Additionally, any other maintenance tasks that can be performed while I am in that section of the engine would be greatly appreciated since I do not want to have to be going back in there anytime soon.

you dont have to drain the oil. i use a small screwdriver to get the seals out, but you can use a seal puller if you want. only the left side cam sprocket is under load when you put the belt back on. you can just use a wrench to hold it in place while you put the belt over. i have a tool to hold the crank pulley, so i cant help you with that.
