Default Crank Sensor without alignment tool?

I am replacing the following on my 1988 Vin C 3800 engine (240,000 miles).
Timing Chain and Gears. Chain Dampner, Timing magnet, timing button, water pump, Cam Sensor, Crank Sensor, belts and hoses. I have the following Questions

1I have heard there are ways to install and align the Crank sensor on a Vin C 3800 engine without having to have the 300 dollar GM J alignment tool . Anybody know?
2 How can I I tell if the timing chain cover is worn too badly from the cam button?
3.Should the Oil Pump be changed? (I have heard these last for over 400,000 miles, anybody ever have a oil pump go bad? I
3 Are the metal pipes coming from the water pump to the heater easy to remove? Should they be replaced?
4. Any tips and or tricks from anyone who has done these replacements will be greatly appreciated.
