Default Valve Covers

What covers are you running? Do you like them? Where did you get them? How hard are they to get on and off?? My KE's are going to the recycler!!!

I bought the cast aluminum, seems lots of companies make similar kind. The issue with mine that gave me fits initially, is that my rig sits low in the rear so the engine angle is severe. Oil pools in the back of the head at speed even with opened up drain back ports, and leaks. Have to use old school gaskets with lots of sealer and then spreader bars under the bolts get them sealed up tight.

Nolan, If you're having problems with them leaking, Bill aka Kidnova has the cure. Give him a shout.

I bought 2 sets of the tall polished aluminum from Bill @ Diamond performance. Good looking covers.
