Rover V8 Timing Cover Assembly Conversion - MGB V8, Rover SD1(see notes) Cobra Replicas Engines, Replacement.
These new covers are a replacement for those hard to find or badly worn early Rover V8 Timing Covers and for some applications, SD1 timing covers.
They are supplied complete with neoprene front oil seal, and cover to block gasket as well as up-rated oil pump gears ( kit) to provide increased volume and oil pressure.
A fuel pump blanking plate is supplied with stainless screws to attach or not installed if you are planning to use on an early engine with mechanical fuel pump.
The oil pump gear shaft (female slotted) as supplied, is to suit distributors equipped with a drive gear and not a drive gear and coupling as per the 1976 - 1992 approx engines. These use a tanged shaft end or male fitting.
If installing the cover on a later 1976> engine, the oil pump shaft can be utilized from your old gear shaft to suit the drive gear installed on your distributor . A hydraulic press will be required to achieve this.
Will accept Standard, Aftermarket Mallory, FAST or MSD Rover type Distributors and P6/SD1 type water pump assemblies.
Rover SD1, Rover P6, MGB V8 or or Range Rover Sump pans can also be fitted.
Some minor filing/fitting may be required to clear the front intake gasket holding plate due to casting variation between early 3.5 litre and later 3.9 engines. The timing marks on your existing crankshaft pulley will need to be re-marked.
Note : Suitable for use in for example Cobra Replicas, MGB V8 Conversions using P6, SD1 or Range/Land Rover Engines.
NOT suitable if your vehicle has PAS or A/C pumps or ancilleries.
Note: No longer supplied with distributor end drive gear.
