Need a Timing Chain Cover

I need a timing chain cover for a 3.8L, V6. The engine is in a 96 Mercury Cougar.


Does anybody know where I can find this part or does anyone have an extra?

I am sure someone will tell me I posted this in the wrong place, there is one in every crowd. All I can say is I need the part and looking for maximum exposure to find it.


Thanks,

I would suggest Ebay. I see this all the time listed with the oil pump. Might as well replace both while your there anyways. I think they go for aboutr 75 maybe?

No, he needs a 96-97 cover, because it has the crank sensor mounting holes cast in to it.
