Marine timing co er for Ford 460

Post  rcyoung1 on January 12th 2018, 6:45 pm

Looking for a marine front timig cover for a 460 with provision for a mechanical fuel lump. These seem to be about as rare as hen's teeth.

Any leads will be appreciated.

What's the difference? Can't say I've ever seen a 460 marine engine.

Alot of jet boats had 460 Fords.
The difference that the 4 lower bolts are all the same length and are flush with the cover lower pprtion.

Are you seeking any aftermarket marine application timing cover a la Nicson, etc?

Or do you specifically mean the ultra-rare, cast iron OEM 460 Marine timing cover that is very similar to the 429 Commercial engine timing cover?

Yup, a Nicson or equivalent is what I need.

If you look on craigslist Detroit metro there is 460 jet boat parts. They're a bunch of jet boat parts including a special timing cover

you might think I am being too picky but that timing cover won't work. That one has built in mouting feet for connecting directly to the boat stringers. I am looking for a cover that accepts a front motor plate to mount the engine to the boat stringers. Also it does appear that that cover has a provision for a mechanical fuel pump.

It doesn't look like the will ship. He wants local pickup and cash only.

Thanks for the heads up.

The.boat stringers are the functionaly the same as a car frame
