I started replacing the camshaft in my '69 block today. I found a piece of sheet metal that was being used as an oil slinger and it doesn't look right being flat with some dings.
I started looking for a replacement and am having trouble finding one. Could someone post a part number for me?
thanks in advance!

sorry I don't have an account that will let me do that yet (I just did a search to find out how).
Let me ask this another way, should there be something between the timing gear on the crankshaft and the timing cover?

Are we talking about the fuel pump eccentric, that pushes on the fuel pump arm from the camshaft? Also the camshaft has the retaining plate behind it?

Or whatever that stamped steel piece is on the crankshaft snout in this olds pic? I've never seen one on the few pontiac motors i've had a apart personally.

There should be nothing between the gear and the cover in post 62 applications.62 and earlier used a spring loaded stamped steel cork seal inside the cover instead of the lip seal which started in 63.Tom
