I'd be rather impressed if you got the 2nd item off and not the 1st or 3rd.

Plan for tomorrow is

Pull the parts that will be swapped and clean them.
Have engine stand ready for new motor.
Power wash it..
Put my parts on and drop it back in.

That IS bad news.

Come on Bill, you're a Gearhead. You're supposed to get it right the first time.

If anyone needs advice on pulling an engine, you're the man.

So are you going to pull out the cam and install it in the new engine?

You might make light of it but it'* a lot of work. :P ........maybe you really are a little OCD, like me.
