New! Ford/Mustang Timing Chain Cover for Aluminum Water Pump
Listen up early Mustang owners, you no longer have to deal with used timing covers, stripped holes, and the like because there's a new timing cover for those with aluminum water pumps! Read all about it below.
Virginia Classic Mustang now stocks a really nice reproduction of the timing chain cover used with the aluminum water pump on the 1964 and early 1965 260 and 289 Ford small-block engines in the Mustang. This one is different from the timing front cover that was used in later production with the cast iron water pump.
This early timing chain cover is deeper where the water pump bolts on to allow clearance for the exposed impeller on the aluminum water pump. This cover is made by Scott Drake from high quality die-cast aluminum, just like the original. It features the stock correct built-in timing pointer along with the Ford engineering number, date stamp and manufacturer logo. The detail on this front cover is extremely nice.
Please note that this cover does not have the provision for the oil filler tube that is found on the very early generator equipped cars.
Virginia Classic Mustang’s part number is EG-5701 and the timing cover currently lists for $139.95.
