      If running a roller cam and want the factory type water pump housing in my opinion this is the only way to go.

          Sweet. Too bad I did not know of this. Just sand blasted and painted my old one.

          I spent a few hours reinforcing a stock cover only to find it still flexed. So I found this one and it’s all billet with a nice cover at the cam button and a sweet cover with an opening for checking
          end play. Yes it’s expensive but tucks in nice behind the factory style water pump housing and zero flex with a nice look.

          Yep, that is what it is designed to do. I've been making them for about 20 years now. Hard to keep up with demand lately. Been selling each batch before I can get the next set machined. People spending their stimulus money I guess!

            And measuring and setting the cam end play is a breeze!

              That is why I include the little set up plate. Most guys won't have the ability to make a plate like that to measure end play so I just make the plates and include them with each cover. Only costs me a few bucks and it makes it easier for guys working in their garage to do the job correctly.

              The TDC pointer is also adjustable so you can compensate for machining errors in the crank or the damper.
