94-95' 5.0 mustang timing covers and water pumps are a real nuisance since they are unique and hard to find. Latemodel Restoration rescued me with offering a brand new timing cover and Ford Racing water pump for such a great price!
The cover has some casting burs on its edges, be sure to go over it with a rag or file or something to take off these loose flakesof metal around the outer edges. Also when taking the old timing cover and water pump off, do yourself a huge favor and prep the old pump and cover before removing, and get a stainless steel bolt set, the 94-95' water pump and timing cover bolts are unique, I got a cheap set of stainless bolts from an online vendor, just have to do some searching and you will find them.
So far no leaks and the water pump is doing a great job keeping my car at normal operating temperatures . I highly recommend any 94-95' owner to get this set if you plan on installing a cam, this job is so big why put old stock parts back on? Start fresh and avoid future hassles!
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!! This is what I wish all Vendors would do; no arguments, no blame, no B.S. !! This is why LateModel stands out as an upstanding company, and backs up their products with AWESOME Customer service. Very rare in this day and age, and because of this I will be a customer for life, and will spread the good word ! Great to know some honest and Classy companies still operate in the good ol' USA. Thanks LateModel, and Thanks Mike !!! I look forward to seeing the New LCA'S and will review them too...You guys did the right thing and should and I'm overly impressed!
