See how the impeller sticks out past the gasket flange in the right picture? the early 289s and 260s used that style pump. There is no metal plate that goes between the pump and timing chain cover. The timing chain cover is recessed on the front of the timing cover for the impeller. So the early SBFs use that style.

Ahaa - never knew they changed them until the 80's. Good to know thanks!

Also I see that one of the timing covers is ribbed towards the top - and the other one is not.... just making notes in my head here. (the 80's versions do not have the dipstick hole either)
Kind of helps when you are scrounging parts at swap meets to know what you are looking at for sure since the bolt patterns are all pretty similar it can be a bit confusing.

I guess cougar folks don't get to much exposure to pre-67 year model engines. Check out this link and you will find that the top left photo matches the picture of the OPs pump. The site has so many pumps.....

It says not to be used with back plate. That's kind of strange because look at the front of the timing cover. Would the water flow ok with all the extra space? 289.jpg

The correct timing cover is the back half of the pump volute. Note the drain slot at 6:00 OC on the picture you posted. I will snap a pic of the correct timing cover.

I glass Beaded this cover and applied 1 coat of semi clear powder coat. Before baking I put a dab of red powder on the pointer tip.

The ad actually states:
Pump: 1680
Ford, Mercury
(1962-1967)


I have disassembled Four 1966 Fairlane 289 engines in the last 3 months and only found the timing covers that had the metal plate between the pump and timing cover. I have only seen those covers on 1965 and earlier SBFs. Note the Ford # in the one pictured in post #9. It is C4OE

Hello, thank you all for your search.
I think it's the 1680 reference on the links
of 70_cougar.
the rib of water circulation are external to the pump.
I noted the model car shown on the page.
