SBC Enderle Cover
« on: June 14, 2018, 03:47:55 PM »
I couldn't find a Hilborn cover so I bought a SBC Enderle timing cover for cam/pump drive. I have a 6 3/4 balancer and I don't think it's going to work. Looks like I'll need to buy the 5.80 balancer. Will I also need to get a pump drive extension (2"-3") to clear the waterman pump and the fuel valves? I want to mount the primary,hi-speed returns, fuel in and shutoff direct off the pump. Looks like its going to be a tight fit.


I don't have the pump yet. Should be here by next week.

I had the same problem,  I bought a Romac balancer, they are all steel, SFI certified, and mine measures under 5.875.  Mine is part #0206 for an internally balanced SBC.   Hope this will be of help.    Right around  $150.00

I'm looking at the Romac 5.80 that alkydigger sells. They want 229.00 Where did you find it for 150.00? Did the pump hoses clear the balancer front face, or did you need a pump extension too?  I'm using a Waterman 400 pump.

I love Mike at Alkydigger but he can be high on some items- Hey he probably has a lake house and I don't so----I actually got the same Romac with aluminum outer for a little more--that unit is top quality and works great I use a pump extension and with that small Romac it really fixes everything--
Remember when you get a pump extension or even swap pumps think about your cam end play--I check very carefully when doing a new build   The pumps can vary and the extensions may gain or lose end play  too much and you got trouble in Paradise   Your shim pack may have to be adjusted  would not want to wreck a block or pump so a timing set with a Torrington on the back comes in darn handy with these applications as little extra insurance
I have always had a fascination with fast cars at the expense of more normal character development

I had a pump extension, and I bought mine probably 5 years ago.  The one on Amazon looks just like it and is probably more like the current price.
