Pros:
  • Function Is Perfect

High quality, high luster valve cover

June 08, 2015
Valve covers arrived neatly and securely packed in high polish. I painted the finned area which was free of any oily residue... fitment was precise. I added the finned oil and PCV breathers also from Speedway to complete the look.
Yes, I recommend this product.

very nice for the price

April 06, 2015
I've always wanted a pair of finned aluminum valve covers (who hasn't, right ?). I thought about trying to find some decent used ones at a swap meet or online, but for the price I thought I might as well look at new ones. These are very nice covers for the price. They are double thick at the mounting holes and come with socket head bolts for mounting. I mounted mine using the t-handles that I already had from my chrome steel covers. Just a note: The fins along the top of the covers are nice and deep, like you would expect, but then they taper to very shallow at the very bottom of both ends. Not a big deal for me, but may be for others, so thought I would mention it. I also bought the Speedway neoprene rubber and steel gaskets to go with these. Nice combo, NO more leaks.
Pros:
  • heavy aluminum, all mounting hardware included, reasonable price
Cons:
  • polish maybe could be a little bit better
Yes, I recommend this product.

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.

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.

I want to use these covers with these parts: Valvetrain Oil Deflector Part # 54567700 Rocker Arm 3/8 Inch Poly Locks Part # 550920 I need to know if the combined height of the poly locks and the oil deflector will fit inside these valve covers, or will the baffles get in the way? I need to know the height of the baffles and the height of the oil deflector. Thanks

The interior depth of these valve covers is 3" at either end and 3 1/2" in the center. With the oil deflector, the screw on baffles would not need to be installed making it a close fit. We apologize but mock up is yet to be made and subject to fit by installer.
