Well I'm ready to put the timing chain cover on and I've got a part that I'm not sure where it goes. It's a round metal flange that has a notch in it that obviously goes on the end of the crankshaft. It has a rounded lip and is dished (for lack of a better word) in the center. Does it go on before or after the timing chain cover is installed and in what orientation? If this isn't too clear, I can make a drawing of it.

I dont want to give bad info but it sounds like you are describing the fuel pump eccentric cam.It would go on after you install the timing chain.A pic would be better though.

Is it thin gauge metal? Sounds like the oil slinger to me, it goes on after the timing set, before the cover and balancer. Make sure the concave (dish) faces forward

Actually, I ran into some of the timing chain sets, double roller type, that will not work with the oil slinger. Good old Ford Motorsports is one.

Sorry I missed the part where it said it obviously goes on the crankshaft.
