Are we speaking of the same retainer behind the timing gear?

Kind of. 3.9s were a full circle, 4.0 was a U. Same bolt pattern

and for what is worth the first 3.9 I put a crower cam in I went to all the trouble to cut the profile to use the retainer. When I replaced it with a 4.6 I didnt and left out the retainer and everything was fine
