Re: timing cover, side cover bolt list....

Looks about right. Just make sure the bolt under the timer is head up not nut up. It can short out the timer if installed the wrong way.

If the engines have been rebuilt (and even if it has not), use something like 10-30 detergent oil. There is no need for 30W non-detergent, you have to change it just as often no matter what oil is...
