Hey guys,
I know someone knows what I need. I can't find a pic and have no idea how to mount this timing pointer. It goes on the pass side of the timing cover. There has to be something that goes between the cover and the pointer and I don't know what that is. Here's a pic of the pointer. The dipstick goes behind this bracket and between the holes. It needs to stand off the cover.

Ah, the timing cover is different. I'll have to make some sort of spacer. Can you measure the timing chain cover behind the bracket, the area I marked? I'll make a spacer. Thanks!

It is not easy for measure it anymore, because my engine is installed. But is your main problem different harmonic balancer length?

You also may need to fit pulley lines fit together and it depends what kind pulleys you are using.

I'm not specialist in this one. In my project I used one spacer to fit pulleys correct line. And just because I select wrong length to harmonic balancer.

I dug thru my parts stash last night and found the right timing cover. So, I get to pull it all back apart. Anyway, thanks for the pic. That was the help I really needed Thumbs Up
