If I understand you correctly then you need to take the cam gears off, which requires all of the timing crap to be removed to get to the seals you are referring to. Have you ever changed your timing belt? If so then it should be a piece of cake, if not... you could be in for a suprise. Most people will say you can change your belt/water pump and cam seals pretty easy... I found it to be a major pain in the ass!

It's not hard to do, but you really need a manual to know the torque specs. It is CRUCIAL that you torque everything properly. You don;t need to touch the cam gearsm cams, or timing belt, at least on an Integra.

i'm pretty sure you just need to get the cam caps off to replace the cam seal (at least the front one (header side)) on a b-series motor.
