Decent product for the price

September 06, 2014
These are a very decent casting, especially without someones marketing name on them. When they arrived the polish on them was pretty rough, but with some time on the buffing wheel they now look great.
Pros:
  • Good casting
  • no logo
Cons:
  • rough polish
Yes, I recommend this product.

A timeless classic look

August 27, 2010
I used these for my old school 32 five window build. They have a certain vintage look no other aluminum cover has. Other places stopped selling their 'in house' brand. Thankfully Speedway still sells their no name version. Perfect look, good price, and no bodys name stamped in them.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I highly recommend this item

August 27, 2010
I was looking for the "old school" appearance for my 1934 Ford Pickup hot rod. These fit the bill with appearance and the holes for breather and PCV valve. Exactly what I was looking for. Oh, by the way, good price.
Pros:
  • Perfect fit and finish
  • Great price
  • "Old school" look
  • Accept PCV and breather
Yes, I recommend this product.

These covers are approximately 3-1/4" tall top of inside to gasket lip. With a tall gasket these should clear most stud girdles

They have a rough polish on them. Some additional polishing will be required if for a show vehicle or high profile engine bay.

What is the size and thread pitch of the screws for the baffles. I bought a unused set of these valve covers second hand from a friend, who originally bought them from you guys. But he lost the screws for the baffles.

Sorry we do not list a thread size for the baffles of these valve covers. You may want to take the valve cover with you to the hardware store to match up to the correct thread size fasteners.
