Interesting, didn't know there was a market for aftermarket replacement timing covers.

These are called "timing covers" because back in the 70's and 80's you would time your Subaru's engine based on the timing marks machined into the backside of the flywheel. Pull off the "timing cover," start the engine and twist the distributor to time the engine while you point your timing light into that hole.


Fast forward to about 1:15 to see the timing hole being used.
