I was working on my car when I noticed two of the bolts on my crank case housing we’re broken. Should I get a new housing or is it fine the way it is?

Ahh the timing cover... yeah while you have everything else apart, I would replace that. Be sure to remove and replace the crank damper with the correct puller to avoid damage, replace yours with the same type cover so your timing pointer and marks on the damper match, and don't strip your threaded bolt holes when you put it back together.

I’ve looked all over but I can’t find one for a 200ci engine. Do you know where I can get a timing cover?

Several members here have lots of used parts. Mustangbob1, NEPM and OldMil come to mind.
