What Kind of timing cover

What kind of timimg chain cover is that? It doesn't look stock in the picture or am I looking at it wrong? It looks as the motor plate is cut out around the cover. I am just be curious. Good looking engine.

Chris,

Thanks for the compliment.

It's an early CP marine cover. It also has provision for a cam driven accessory as well. We went that route because we thought it was a lot stronger than a stock type cover. We also made up some large hollow stainless dowels that fit between the block and cover so any load is carried by them and not the studs. The covers are a bit expensive, about $360. to $375. depending on the brand you buy.

Our new 588 will have a Danny Bee drive, so we won't be using a cover.

Brock, check your email.

I would like to know more about your alternator bracket/mount setup. I would like to put an alternator on my dragster.

Thanks
David Cole
