    You do NOT have to remove the motor to get the rear timing cover off but you do need to pull all the belts off

    There has been no clear timing cover fo the 420a's yet.
    Maybe this can be posted in the vendor section to have vendors start making some for the 420a guys.

    Awakening a dead thread...

    i have been waiting for something like this for the 420a as well...
    a year later and still no one makes it.

    My question is how different are the actual cam sprockets and such between the two?
    i was thinking about getting the 4g63 one and fabbing it up to work on the 420a.

    i know the 4g63 cover is 3 pieces whereas the 420a is only 2 pieces (front and back).
    But if you cut the 420a cover right, would it be possible to fab it and mount it on the 420a?

    3rd time reviving this thread. I'm also looking for a clear timing cover for the 420a. Still none yet?

    None to my knowledge, and I doubt there ever will be.

    I'm currently making a carbon fiber one for my 4G63. If its successful I can make one for a 420A.

    Can you do Acrylic Joshua? I think these guys would love to be able to see their components.

    Yep. I hate pulling the upper tab everytime I want to check the condition of my belt. Also when I get some custom cam gears I'd like to show em off a bit at the shows. :sneaky:

    I have a mold I made so I can try and see what I can do. Does anyone currently make a clear one for the 4963?

    I have a mold of the 4G63 not a 420a so if I can make one for the 4g63 if someone wants to send me an upper cover for a 420 I could prob repeat the process.

    If I can pull off a clear acrylic one how many people would be interested in one and what would you be willing to pay or what would be a fair price?

    That's the problem: I'm not sure there's enough interest these days to make it worth your effort. But if you don't mind making a small run, more power to you!
