I have a timing cover from a 67 289 with the dipstick hole, but I didn't think I would be able to bolt up all of the accessory brackets from the later engine, as well as the later water pump...will it all fit? I don't want to track down another set of brackets and pullies.
I will take a look at the timing cover on the engine and see if I can drill it out.
