Timing Cover

I have a 1995 3.9 to 4.6 conversion with the original timing cover with the integrated oil pump gears.

Can the timing cover be changed to the later serpentine type?

What is the advantage of the serpentine type?

If you did a search, you would find that you could use a hybrid cover from a 94 - 95 disco.

found that but didn't get any more details.....is that the name of it..."hybrid cover"?

is it in all those model years of discovery?

did you find there are advantages to getting it and having serpentine cover?

94 and 95 discoveries and 95 RRCs.

Why you would do this I have no idea.

that's what I was wondering.....is there a significant difference with the serpentine setup?

also, is the oil pump different (ie higher volume) or is it the same as the 3.9 pump in the cover?

No reason to change. The in the cover oil pump has few advantages. If you are worried about pressure rebuilt the one you have. To switch over you need all new ancillaries and water pump, pulleys etc etc etc.

In addition to all the easy bolt on shite mentioned above, to convert an older shortnose crankshaft to serpentine you also need to machine the keyway on the end of the crankshaft longer by about 5/8".
