sbc plastic timing cover and short w/pump

I'm guess'n that they work together but I've been wrong before..
engine has'n got here yet to look at old and new..
hoping they do.. or I'm s.o.l. with truck brackets..
anyone know the difference in hight off the block face, plastic vs metal timing cover..

per the dealership parts guy the vortec 350 #12530282 is two bolt mains and single chain and the 12530283 4 bolt main is dual chain, so the cover could be a standard sbc cover..
anyone know??
thanks

The plastic covers that come on the 604 crate engine works with a short water pump. We usually change the cover out to an aluminum one because the heat of a race car can sometimes cause them to soften/melt and leak oil.

I think I had to swap out a couple of the bolts on the back of the water pump for flatter allen head bolts to clear the plastic cover on my ZZ4 crate.
