Sorry to tell you this but, You have to drop the oil pan to get the timing cover back on. I had to do that same thing.

do I have to drop the hole pan or just loosen the bolts enough to get the cover on?

hopefully you can loosen it enough to get it back in but i had to pretty much drop the whole thing before I had enough room!

You can try loosening the bolts and if that does not work you can always remove it. Just besure to check for any rips in the gasket or u will be back under there again.
