Isn't the ZZ4 built on Gen I architecture? If so, then any Gen I stuff ought to fit ok.

Double roller should fit cover. But, check the block area around the cam. Some later blocks have to be relieved, around the three soft plugs, to clear the backside of the upper gear.

What Bob says is true. This is why Cloyes makes a "Vortec" street single roller timing set. I installed a double roller which I was told would work on my Vortec block and it did, but it was also making contact, and from the eyeball view it looked as if it wasn`t making contact but was. Needless to say, it ruined a new engine. I lived and I learned. The Cloyes Vortec set clears everything nicely. I got mine from northern auto parts for around $45
