My timing chain cover has a oil baffle cast into it that directs the oil away from the top of crank shaft and It hits the idler gears
And I was hoping that you might have heard of this and had a recommendation of another cover part number. Anyway I got another timing cover and it has the
same baffle cast into it. Then I called a local ford parts store and they tell me that they have never seen a cover that didn't have the baffle. So I just now cut the
baffle off even with the inside casting surface of the chain cover and problem solved. It now fits just fine. The stock oil slinger also clears just fine. Once I
tightened the cover the gear pins set solid with no play.
