Timing Cover

Can anyone tell me if there is a difference between timing covers for different years of sbc blocks? I just ordered and received one from Summit that was advertised as "sbc" without reference to a year. Now with the timing cover in hand I note the package says, "1969-86". If this is just a style issue because it has the bowtie on it, then I'm ok, but if it will not match up, then I'm up the creek.

If it has a crank position sensor (vortec) then its a different cover.

I think the only difference comes into play around the timing indicator, if welded on the timing cover, it could make a difference. If it has no timing indicator and requires one that mounts using a couple of the timing cover screws then you are ok, just make sure you get the right timing indicator (pointer) to bolt up... That would be the only difference I can come up with, the timing gears and chain are the same with so the depth of the cover should not be a problem. As to up the creek those Summit guys are ok with exchanges .. they are use to it, believe me. current location Nashville Tn
