Does someone make a repair kit with a SS liner for the timing cover? It's hard to find good used ones anymore, they all seem to
be scored.

/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif Two-hundred-and-five rassbuckniks.....add $70 if you don't have an exchange core. Go to their website to get the scoop on what they do to those covers./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Quadratec is now selling a new Timing Chane Cover. It says in the new catalog,
for 72-81 304 v8 #51010.00 194.95. Wouldn't this work on the 360 and 401? I thought they were the same.

Seems like someone could make a speedy sleeve (of sorts) that would work. I couldn't find their website, I'll give them a call next week.

In reply to a new cover you still would have a inferior design unless they have improved them.

Has anyone out there installed one of the Quadratrec timing cover / oil pump assemblies? Four years ago, I rebuilt my '77 304 and this is one of the weak areas of my rebuild. I didn't replace the oil pump housing and my pressure is suffering.

/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif That's the big advantage that the guys in Oregon have...their process is very exacting.....they make a science out of it, and are real proud of the idle oil pressure that the Buicks and AMCs have with their covers./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif I wouldn't THINK of putting up an AMC V8 without the trick oil pump...it's just too disheartening to watch the oil pressure go to zilchola at hot idle./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Thanks for the lead on Lind, in Eugene OR, for re-man of the timing chain and oil pump covers.... $205 is a verrrrrry small price to pay...especially after sinking $3k into the rest of my re-build job! .....I got carried away...

The AMC engine sure has some idiosyncracies, doesn't it?
