You need to use the Spica cover for both mounting of the pump and oil pressure passages to it.

Well, if you're going with nonstock stuff you kind of have to check each thing. Note, a 1990 crank should have a larger rear main seal than your 1980 engine. Your oil dipstick provision might differ.

If your putting a different timing cover on your block then the one it came with.

Put the idler gear on the block with no chains then slide the timing cover your going to use on. Make sure the gear spins freely with the cover tighten down with a couple of nuts.
