Default replace clutch+timing belt+adj. lash=pull engine?

I am planning on replaceing the timing belt 97 OBS. The valve lash adjustment is also over due (117,000mi).When I bought the car (101,000mi) the clutch engagement point was very high(no freeplay at all) since this car has a cable I was able to adjust it. Now it seems that the clutch is starting to slip in 5th gear.
Since I'll be doing all this without a lift (but with air tools and access to a hoist) does it pay to pull the motor completly and do the timing belt and lash adj. with the engine out of the car?
Anything else other than the rear main to replace while the engine and tranny are apart?

havent doen the lash adjust yet but removing the radiator = doing the timing belt in 90 mins I wouldn't pull the motor. On the other hand if you need a new clutch might as well pull it and replace the seals too. I havent done mine (210k miles) but they havent started to leak and the clutch is fine.

May after my first season of rally-x and auto-x I'll need a new clutch or maybe a new motor time for a 2.5 swap yay!

Have fun and be safe.

I would prefer pulling the motor. Spend a day and have some fun.
