      1998 Ford Explorer 4.0 SO
      Hello I am new member.

      I am changing all of the timing chains on my 1998 explorer. I pulled off the cover
      on the rear jack shaft to get to the bolt, and I cannot find a new cover it looks like a freeze plug. I am not sure what it is call I tried searching jack shaft cover/plug and nothing comes up. I described it to the dealer he said they only sell it with a new jack shaft . has anyone been thru this .

      Thanks Bob
