I took them apart, stripped them, and put fresh black wrinkle finish on them. Someone clearanced the valve cover rail area so the bases could clear a high performance valve train.
This does not effect function and does not show when installed. I see a small weld on the underside of one top plate.I imagine this was done at the factory to fill a casting void. Again, this does not show when installed. There is one top plate allen bolt that is missing and 2 that are there are a bit buggered where the allen wrench goes in. I imagine these will be easy to find. These covers are very high quality and weigh right at 12 pounds each!
These covers are the type of part you can search for a decade to find and still come up empty handed. If you have been looking for a set of the Gennie Shifter valve covers, don't miss these!
