Good sleuthing! Sorry about the "why". You can see the gear thru the governor mounting hole. To remove the timing gear cover (which bolts to front of engine as well as to oil pan at bottom), will be a job, especially if I am correct in that the crankshaft pulley has to be removed or at least partially removed,in order to have space to remove/install the cover behind the pulley. That means removal of front axle & support. Maybe someone who has done this recently can come along and give you better news, but I don't think so.
