You mean thing like little springs which ping off and land on the gravel path outside the open door? No nothing like that.
They even conveniently designed it so the crankshaft doesn't fall out unless you turn it upside down.

Usual warning, note where everything came off and which bolts fit where.

with the engine out swing arm off it is easy to split gearbox off take starter off before you take frame off ..... when you replace it do it horizontally line up the gearbox sprocket by eye do not use grease even tho some manuals suggest it I found that a builders pencil works well as a lubricant and will not get on the clutch ....I use a big rubber mallet gentle taps and a screwdriver thro the tining hole the satisfaction of hearing it snick home is brilliant there are marks on the engine case and flywheel to assist lining it all up top tip is to get lh cyl at tdc beforehand and make sure you mark flywheel to the mark which is about 11 0clock as you look at it from the rear ..... again it shows this in the Haynes manual ...

I've managed to strip the paint and remove the gearbox. There is some oil in the bell housing from the engine side...I think, its hard to tell (see photos below). The clutch seems to be completely dry so I'm inclined to leave the seals well alone. I can live with a light weep from the drain hole at the bottom of the bell housing. Any thoughts?

Can't see in the photos, has it got the metal pipe(s) for the breather system? 'Cause oil can dribble down from there if the hoses are leaky.

It does have the metal breather pipe. If I remember correctly the hose was loose without a clip so that's a possibility
