Right, having now finished my rebuild i decided to leave the top timing cover off to show my nice new greddy timing belt :gay: . So far i have had mixed views, some say its an accident waiting to happen incase any thing finds its way into the belt area. Others say it will be fine. I have seen loads of the rb26's with the adjustable pullys without the top covers fitted, which seem to be trouble free. I have thought about the clear top cover but wondered how difficult it is to mod to fit the rb25's. I wanted to see if any of you guys or, girls have done the same, did it end in tears?? or was all well. What would you do?

I think the clear cam cover is the way to go, it's just asking for a stone to get caught between the belt and gears and bye bye engine.

I found this pic, I think it looks very good with the clear cover modified.




everything going back together ok?

Anyone know if there's any companies that do the plastic 26 pulley covers without any text on them? I want to stick one on my 20 so I can paint it along with the plug cover, and have the cam covers polished. If I keep the original 20 cover, it'll look a bit manky, not a fan of it.
