The timing cover that comes with this engine will only accommodate a late model single roller timing chain. If a old style double roller timing chain is used, a Gen V sheet metal timing cover must be used - part # 12551544 must be used. If this timing cover is used, only half of the bolt holes are drilled and tapped in the block (this is how the Gen VI timing cover is set up) The extra bolt holes will need to be located by using the Gen V timing cover as a template and drilling and tapping the holes accordingly.

This block will accommodate a factory Gen VI roller camshaft or an old style MarkIV flat tappet camshaft.
