You do not need an eccentric if you plan on using a electric fuel pump. You will need the oil slinger or splash shield.

If you are using an aftermarket double roller timing chain and gear set, check to see if the oil slinger will seat against the crank gear and not rub the chain. I used the Motorsport double roller and had to pitch the slinger.

No, its not needed but its a good idea to install it anyway. Rationale is you may change your mind about running the electric and you wouldn't want to have to remove the timing cover to install the eccentric...its a good idea to put it on if you've got it.
