Installing timing cover with pan installed?

Installing timing cover with pan installed?

Postby BobCT [OP] » Dec 21 2019, 2:30pm

I just replaced my double row timing chain and gears (the engine is on a stand). I can’t get the timing cover reinstalled though, do I need to drop the pan down a little?

Does the pan install “up” against the bottom of the cover? Right now, the cover won’t seat flush because the bottom of the cover is getting pushed out by the oil pan gasket.

I know they made some updates to the cover, this is an original ‘01 if it makes a difference.
