Robo: I have a non-supercharged '95 Park Avenue that I am getting ready to sell sitting in my driveway. After eyeballing it...everything appears to be identical. smile

The VIN should tell you when your RIv was made, which would tell you what parts you can use. Can't remember the cut off, but the series one SC had a point where they were built using many series 2 parts. This explains some of the 95SC "factory freaks" that seem so have much more power than others. They got the series two crank which is lighter, and gives the engine more oomph where the series one really needs it, in the upper RPMs. The timing cover and oil-pan are examples of this. You can actually find 95 series one supercharged engines with series 2 stamped into their pans. For instance if you look up the 95sc for an oil pan, there are two available that depend on your casting number-> VIN.

(also we need to keep in mind that a non-sc 95 would have been a series 2 motor.)

Hmmm...very interesting. The engine in the Park Avenue says SERIES II , but the timing cover "appears" to be indentical...go figure. THANKS FOR THE GOOD INFO !!! burnout

yeah, I'm trying to find where I'd read that info...

hrm, not what I was looking for but useful:
"the SII cover on the left and the SI cover is on the right...essentially the covers are the same but Al's fingers are pointing to the major difference...the SII cover has one bolt hole deleted and the other moved...

by now you have rfigured that the cleaner piece is the SII cover...the filthy one the SI unit...here are the two oil filter mount units...both are interchangable between covers (W body unit on the filthy SI cover.)

here is a side by side view of the SII and SI covers near the oil filter adapter mountings here also you can see the (minor) differences between the two units"

I finally found a cover off a 94 s/c bonnieville.identical. grimace its a mofo,tryin to get a cover off in the blaring nevada sun,with nothing but hand tools and a greasy as shit engine burnt all to hell.
Best day of the month for sure! no nagging girl friend,just a bunch of junked cars and a whole bunch of mexicans just a roamin' round the yard lookin for parts...heaven!
