Hi all.

My 96 liberty donor had an incident involving a cow....soooo it will need some timing cover plastics...
does any one know if there are aftermarket ones available?
I can get some from the wreckers, that are shabby and cost as much as the motor again....
Will also need a cam sprocket for passenger side.

Cow versus car... know body wins!!

thanks in advance

No aftermarket that I know of BUT I would check the cost of new ones as they use to be less than $200 for the set from Subaru.

I recently got some new genuine ones and they came to about $350 with new gaskets.

Thanks Brad and Burto.

looked at both options and new are about 30% dearer then secondhand. Add freight from the wreckers and the prices are just about the same. That's in my case as I'm a little remote. So new would get the nob unless and can scam a trip going past my Subaru wreckers on the coast....Mmmmm.

New Subarugears? You've already got one set! Are you building a second car?
