I don't think those exist. A lot of people just remove the upper timing cover and then hope pencils and gravel don't get in there. GI Joe figures are okay, the timing gears and crank pulley will chew those up no problem.

I wouldn't leave it open long term. Even if nothing major pops in the hole, the dust from longterm running will erode the sprocket teeth to where they round off enough to possibly allow belt to jump. Found that after longterm running a SOHC 2.3 like that. Much more dirt to make cam and crank seals fail early too. It looked neat though, and I could change the belt in maybe ten minutes.

I've never seen a clear timing cover for any zetec. Mostly Japanese imports. Also if you do HPDE, you might need the timing covered.
