I had an `83 wing and changed head gasket without removing cams and such,I now am changing headgaskets on an `87 without removing belt pulleys,cams,just the 7 bolts,waterjoint pipe ,that`s it.Does anyone know why manuals say to undo the cams,don`t understand since the head can be removed without touching them?

The manuals generally approach things from a "complete tear-down and rebuild" standpoint. In which case, you would remove the pulleys and the cam shafts. However, you're only replacing the head gaskets; so you don't need to tear it all the way down.
Jesus Christ never taught that answering His call was a matter of convenience. It may well cost your life.
