Which is the best front cover / timing chain case and water pump fitting modification to use?
I've got a deadline, at 73, I want to finish it before I die!

Different front covers usually (if not always) require changing the back cover to match.

At the risk of becoming even more boring this modification almost totally stops water pump failures. Big caveat here - if you don't use it it will fail when you do!! D
