BB Timing Chain Cover
« on: July 15, 2013, 01:26:21 PM »
Did the timing chain cover for a '68 396/325 have the timing tab welded on the cover or did it use a two piece design (cover plus bolt-on tab)? I believe the two piece design was for replacement covers only but not 100% sure.


Thanks,

Bob

Original production covers had welded timing tabs.

Here's the 7" (rusty) and the 8" (orange).

Ed,

Excellent. Thank you very much.

Some where in the previous ownership of my car the service replacement cover and bolt on timing tab was installed. Today I just scored a purchase of the 7" version with the timing tab welded on so all is well.

Thanks for providing the examples.
