Replacing Timing Cover

Hi, guys. Probably a simple question, but what's the best way to install the upper timing cover with the engine already in the car? It doesn't seem like it can be squeezed in without dropping the motor in some way.

It's doable. A tight squeeze but doable.

1/4" drive ratchet, extension and socket as well as ratcheting wrench.

drop the two nuts that hold the pass. motor mount to the engine (not the chassis) and jack that side of the motor up. You should have enough clearance; works for me.

Will you install the clear cover?

This.
Also, if you pop out the Pwr steering reservoir you can lift it and the lines a little and gain some more room.
