Probably the timing tab is attached to the cover on 86-newer, not sure though.

1986 up Chevrolet blocks have a different oil pan sealing system, annd a different oil pan seal.....so that the later 86 and up stuff will not fit 55-85 stuff.


:p

1986 and up use a one piece rear crank seal.

When I built my '86 350, I used a chromed timing cover off an older sbc. The timing tab is located different. My '86 timing cover had the timing tab located in the center and the damper had TDC at 12 o'clock. When I went to the older timing cover, I also had to go to the bolt on timing tab and damper that had TDC at 2 o'clock. The oil pan is different from pre-85 to 86-later, but the timing covers will bolt up. I used a one piece rubber oil pan gasket for '86-later and had no leaks.
