You mean the water pump face on the timing cover? Think he's replacing the entire cover...

Looks a little different to the one i used... but got mine direct from ford.

If it tightly fits in the timing cover... and snugly fits over the crank... then it should do the trick.

Nah mate she's pretty "toight" fit in the timing cover.

What i would say... is dont press it in just yet.... wait til the new timing cover is fitted to the engine, then slide the seal over the crank and tap her in to the timing cover. You need the bit of room to move between the crank and the timing cover when refitting the cover.

put the timing cover seal (round metal thing)in the freezer for 24hrs before you fit it to timing cover.

im assuming make it shrink just a little which may make it easer to tap in.. (provided you do it whilst its still cold :) )

Sorry to dig up an ancient thread. Just did a google search and it came up.

Looking at buying a 5L XR8, current owner says it needs a new timing cover/water pump gaskets, just wondering how much work this would be or roughly how much the average mechanic would charge to do??

Thanks for your help!

It's about a 2hr job. I got my timing cover gasket set from Precision International for ~$22.

Just make sure you remember all the bolts are imperial.
