The long anticipated Billet Sidecover for the GX200 / Clone and Predator Hemi Engine has arrived. It has the attention to detail and good looks that have come to be expected of ARC's billet products. It features side by side dual ball bearings that support the crank and gives it another fulcrum point to help eliminate any crankshaft flexing. It has an integral o-ring along the perimeter in it's machined groove that guarantees a good seal. 4 solid pin receptacles mate with solid dowels to increase mating shear strength. Bronze bushing(with ARC's adavanced oil system) support for camshaft main increases strength and minimizes potential for wear. It has 2 venting holes at the top with 1/8" NPT Plugs. It also has 2 oil fill ports with billet ARC aluminum hand tighten plugs. Another useful feature is the threaded holes over the side dowel -pins so that small bolts (included) can be used to push the side cover for easy removal.
* Includes: Bearings, Seal, Gasket, O-Ring, Plugs and caps and installation hardware.
***use 14oz of oil in most applications***
***Select Predator Hemi and 212cc blocks will not have proper size dowel holes at the top and bottom of the block. You will need to drill them to proper size if you want all 4 dowels in the sidecover***
* Important * Due to variations in clone blocks, you may find that the side cover is not quite lining up with all four dowel pins. Try removing the bottom dowel pin if you encounter difficulty. Contact our tech department if you have any problems. Will Not fit old style Harbor Freight Greyhound or Non Hemi engine. Will Not work with Stud Kit.

Beautiful solid piece, perfectly machined for the predator 212cc hemi. Easy to install if the cylinder head is removed. I tried installing it on my modified engine (stage 4 NR) and it was difficult to install without removing the cylinder head. I am assuming it was from the added pressure on the cam lobe from the 36lb springs.
If you want this beautiful piece to install easily just remove the cylinder head. This will allow you to line up the dowels and your o ring seal will seat correctly when torquing the bolts.
Removing the head was not on the video so I thought I should mention it.
ARC, thanks again for all your videos. Your videos allow enthusiasts like my son and I to take part in these motorsports. Without your videos and knowledge, my son would probably be playing fortnite all spring break.
This product is a piece of art, fits perfect also has its benefits like the dual bearing is a stronger design the baffled crank case relief is ideal for releasing crank case pressure without losing oil while doing so, another great feature is the o ring seal around the case it's much better for motors with a lot of crank case pressure where the factory style gasket blows out and leaks, I'm very impressed with this item, great purchase.
Heard great stuff about the billet side cover, wont crack anymore blocks now
This kit comes with everything you need to install it.
I’m building up a predictor-212 and am lovythe ease and quality of these components..
Great video support also
The item fit just like it was supposed to. The technicians helped me identify and get the right part! They walked me what to check to ensure that the part would fit my application!
wouldnt fit my predator, because i had opted for a starter on mine, but the cover is beautiful so i guess im gonna buy another predator LOL. this cover is so worth it.
Nice Cover well made and it's a heavy piece, can see why it Will strengthen the block and the duel bearings will surely reduce crank flex.
Product exactly as described as great as usual
