This truck was purchased by my father in 78 been sitting for past 8 years in his driveway in SO CAL. I am now going to fully restore it. I had the engine rebuilt and the transmission. It seems the timing cover has some corrosion and I cannot use it anymore. The mechanic cannot find a replacement anywhere. Does anyone know of a site that sells them or am can they only be found in a junk yard?

The part that is corroded is the the piece where the hose connects to the cover. The mechanic said he can try to weld it?

Common issue. Try contacting Wildluvracing here and he might have a used one to sell.

Oh, dude! I just threw one in metal recycling this last weekend!

I am so sorry. I held on to it for months thinking someone was going to need it.

Sorry I just saw your post. Did you find a timing cover?
