I would not buy this product again

July 20, 2015
I tried these valve covers on a dirt circle track car. If these valve covers mounted with the standard off the shelf stud kit I think they would be perfect. Where would you find a 1/4-20 x 3 1/2 inch bolt when you break one at the track? Difficult to keep gasket on and find holes in head to align the valve covers.
Pros:
  • Good Looking And Lite
Cons:
  • leaks
No, I would not recommend this product.

These would be classified as a “tall” valve cover. They measure 3.5” from the gasket surface to the inside (center) of the valve cover. They should clear shaft mounted rocker arms, however when using a valve cover like this I have had to do some clearancing on the billet gasket rail with some roller rocker arms (shaft or stud mounted).

There is no lip on bottom of these valve covers to hold gasket in place. What type of gasket and installation is required.

Any standard sbc gasket should work. You may need to use some RTV to hold the gasket in place
