timing belt covers

That said, I don't have any covers either. With a total of 5 EA82s that I pulled parts from, I couldn't even get enough of the cover pieces to form one good set, so I ditched them. It does make for an interesting time lining the timing belts up though.

PS: if you arn't going near much that can hurt the belts then who needs covers.

I don't like them, don't use them.

Am I right in thinking that the groove between the cover and the head block is where the hole in the sprocket should line up with (in the abscence of the notch in the inner cover)?

The advantages (easier servicing) far outweigh the possible disadvantages (premature wear) by a large margin, IMO.
I would reccomend running a skid/side plates and frequent engine bay cleanings if you decide to go naked.
good luck, John
