Timing chain, valve guides and seals

I looked through the archives and really couldn't find a definitive answer...so here I am! What are the chances of a DIYer with lots of mechanical intuition, not experience, but intuition, replacing the timing chain, guide rails, etc, and valve guides and seals successfully? I do have factory service manuals on the way. Other than the valve spring compressor, are there any special tools needed?
