New! Ford / Mustang Timing Chain Cover for Aluminum Water Pump

We now have 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 later 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 Mustang Parts from high quality die-cast aluminum like the original.  It features a 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.

Our part number is EG-5701.

By 1966, Ford originally went to the cast iron water pump and used another style of timing chain cover. We have that cover also. Our part number is EG-570.
