The FSM (EM-76) tell to gradually heat the timing gear cover to 60C (140F).

It needs to be heated to remove the "automatic timer" from the cover (according to the manual).
Yes, I know that... but look some page after (EM-76)... it show to heat it before put it back in place.
Anyway, cruiser_guy ... that make sence.
I'm not sure if the guy who make the rebuilt heat the cover before put back in place... I think not...(https://forum.ih8mud.com/diesel-tech-24-volts-systems/207628-here-good-one-timer-gear-bearing.html)
But when you are reinstalling things, you must obviously have the timer on the injector pump and all the cogs in place. So the cover needs to be heated to get it to slide easily over the bearing - and then the cover will cool and hold the bearing securely (via contraction as it cools).
Am I right?
I believe that's the idea. That is what I did when I rebuilt the 3B in the FJ55.
