Part 2 1970 timing cover for late model also

G'day

I purchased a timing cover from the local supplier it is a Kilkenny Casting one that is made for both early and late model windsors.

The casting is slightly different to the early model but has the crank position sensor mount on it as well photo below.

My question is how does the late model crank seal mount and does the late model engine have a oil slinger because the one I've got doesn’t fit it pushes the bottom of the cover out from the block.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks

The seals on the late model covers I hope mount from behind with the lip forward like the early models and presume that the seal without the lip is the correct seal.

Stop Looking

I called the dealerships a they told me the oil slinger is there mainly to help the seal, but with the new seals its not needed. I am still not sure if the spring lip should point out or not. Or if to put it in from the front or the back.

Spring lip always faces towards the oil... If it's in the wrong way, pressure can build up and push through seal.

Thanks elxr8 my early rebuild book says to put the seal in from the back but the cover is a late model one and the hole is tapered bigger at the front so I guess it goes in from the front.(with lip and spring facing in)
