Where is the timing chain cover?

Asked by Nov 08, 2013 at 06:57 PM about the 1963 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Where would I go about finding the
timing belt cover so I can get my 63 tbird  
firing continuously? I have the shop
manual but it doesn't show where it is
under the hood. Also, where would the
harmonic balancer be so I can do this
right.

The harmonic balancer is the thing the large fan belt pulley is bolted to at the bottom front center of the engine. Your timing cover may be referred to in your shop manual as the engine front cover. The timing chain and sprockets are right behind it. This is a big job. Follow the instructions in your shop manual carefully and take your time. HTH. -Jim

Don't want to be a buzz kill, but if you don't know what the harmonic balancer is and where it is, you should have a shop do the job, not a good job to start on.
