    Quick question -

    On an early chevy SB where the timing cover and oil pan seal together is there a preferred order of installation? In other words, should I put my timing cover on first and then the oil pan? Vice versa? Any other tips for install to avoid leaks?

    Thanks again.

    Fresh build , its timing cover first and use the proper oil pan rubber when putting the pan on .

    I have done a timing chain with engine in car , and doing the cover with pan installed sucks . It can be done , but I dropped the pan to the crossmember anyway .
