Just curious if anybody has encountered a similar problem. I'm trying to put timing gears in my 351W, and the timing chain cover wont clear do to a peice in the middle near the crank seal that extrudes quite a bit. When I try putting it on, that peice hits the middle section of the timing gears. I was thinking about milling it off and see if that works, but still unsure if i will have enough clearance. Has anybody else run into this problem? If so, what was your solution. Or is there an aftermarket cover out there that can solve the problem. Thanks for the help.
