+I'm rebuilding a 93 5.0 HO to put in my 66 coupe. I bought a wrecked 93 parts car and got the ECM, wiring,sensors ect. My problem is the 5.0 dipstick is near the rear and won't
work with a front sump oil pan, so I need a timing cover with a dipstick hole. But the only covers I can find listed with a dipstick hole take a standard rotation water pump. I need a reverse rotation pump to keep the serpentine belt setup. I know this swap has been done many times, I just need to find out what parts I need to make it work.

you can drill the later model timing cover for the dipstick tube, no big deal. in fact some later model timing covers just have the dipstick opening plugged with a plug that you can pop out with a hammer and punch.

Thank you,I was thinking about doing that, but I didn't know if it was thick enough in the right place.
