I have a 351W that I am rebuilding, my timing cover was wasted with corrosion. Have come across a 65, 289 cover in great shape. It looks the same and should work, one problem is that the timing pointer is molded in on this one and is a bolt on unit for he 69. Is this going to be a problem? Should I look for the correct unit?

Thanks,

The 289 cover and water pump will work on the 351W, so will the 289 balancer. Check to be sure the pointer is lined up with "0" on the balancer when #1 piston is at TDC.
