Does anyone have timing covers for the 2.3L SC? Mine are all cracked and I'm not paying the outrageous price they want for new ones...

the 2 sets on our cars were bought at tasca. i did find one of the 3 on ebay, in fairly good condition. i was scouring ebay for years looking, i knew they had to be replaced when i did the pump/belts/etc. the only good place to get them is tasca

from my experience, the warping is caused by hot oil. if you have an oil leaking on the covers, changing the covers is only temporary. and, in my experience, ALL 2.3's will leak oil from the valve cover gaskets. also, there are 3 pieces in the set. if you are lucky, or, if you get to the oil leaks quickly, the center piece, which is smaller than the other 2, will not need to be replaced. the rear bank seems to go first. probably because of the cam plug.
