I can see someone doing this in a pinch in their garage when they have no other option, but for a company to sell this is just crazy.

The driver's side front cam cap has the mount for the distributor. You can't just move cam caps to a different head, they are machined to match. Seems to me you need a driver's side (left) head.

While I'm sure that it would work, it seems like a bit of a hackjob to me. The surfaces should be clean and the O-ring new or very close to new if re-used. Grease the slot in the timing cover then...

Seems like the cost savings of the cheap crappy U-joint is negated by the need to buy a fancy tool to band-aid the problem. Why not buy a quality part? OEM joints often last over 200,000 miles with...
