Timing Chain cover Question

I have a timing chain cover off of the '99 F-150 4.6, and when I hold it in front of the one on the engine in my cougar, it looks *VERY* close... the only difference seems to be that the idler pully for the F-150 has three bolts holding it to the cover, and the on on the car has two visable from the top. Will the cover from the F-150 work when I do the '02 explorer swap (I was going to rebuild the '99 block, but the consensus was that it would cost about as much as, or more than, an almost new '02 explorer engine from Greenleaf).

As reference, the part numbers on them are:
'99 F-150 cover - F65E-6C086-AD
'95 Cougar - F3AE-6D080-AC

'95 Cougar - 2002 Explorer engine, 2004 Mustang PTP2 PCM

I'm no expert on the 4.6 but I would assume that since they are different part numbers that something is different about them such as the idler pulley as you mentioned and possibly other things you can't see. Speaking from experience swapping engines though, it's always easier to do a total engine swap rather than piece-work one together from numerous other resources. If Greenleaf can get you the whole thing ready to drop in the car then that's the route I'd take. You'll certainly have more hair when you're done!

Well... The engine from Greenleaf is ALMOST ready to drop in... a few parts need to be changed on the engine, such as the fuel rails, timing chain cover (I think), it seems fuel lines are a good idea too, so the originals can't crimp because the supply/return are in a different place than the '95...

ah ok, can you use your original Romeo timing covers then? Maybe a call to Max at 5 Star can settle the differences in the timing covers? Just food for thought.

There is one bolt by the water pump that will be off by 1/4" or so. It will not work.

Blown94SC is correct. You need the 94-95 cover. You can use the one on your engine.

Ok. I was just hoping to be able to have all (or most) of the parts that would need to be changed done before I even take the original engine out...
