Just seen an ad for a 94 t.c. in my area, it says it is in nice shape
except for leaking timing cover, how involved is this to fix?.

Not terrible. You'll have to remove anything in the way, including the coil packs and their brackets, the power steering pump, water pump pulley, harmonic balancer, as well as both valve covers. Sounds like a lot but it's all rather easy on that particular engine, with the exception of the power steering pump (which isn't difficult, just awkward to get at the mounting bolts).

Thanks for great explanation, would it be a good time to replace timing chain ?,
if it even has one?., thers a 100,000 miles on it.

The chains are generally good for the life of the engine, but the nylon tensioners can be a problem on higher mileage examples, especially fleet vehicles that see a lot of idle hours. Check the condition of the chain tensioners when you have the cover off. If they are good, so is everything else. Just reseal the cover and you are good to go.

Hopefully it's a Signature Series. The seats in those are simply amazing. Deep, soft, comfortable, yet still supportive.
