Weiand Timing Cover

Hello all

I just bought a old school finned weiand timing cover for my 350 engine and it has spacers for the water pump on it to clear the fins on the timing cover that will push the water pump out about a 1/2" from the block this will I assume cause the pulleys to be mis aligned any what do I need to do to compensate for the pulleys to line up? Thanks for your help

I assume those spacers are for a short style water pump. If you have a long pump you probably won't need them. What kind of car is this going in? (the year is most important). This will tell you if you need or have a long or short water pump. This will determine if you will have issues with pully alignment.

Timing cover

this cover has the spacers incorporated into the timing cover casting, it is going on an 83 350 with a long water pump, I was wondering if i could use a short pump and see if that works. thanks

Oh, I see I have seen those timing covers around. You will have to use a short water pump otherwise your pullies will never line up. Measure the spacers, I bet they are right at 3/4" thick.
