Finally Got The Old 'Scripts' cleaned up and installed

Recommended Posts

I finally got up enough nerve to put the old valve covers on the engine.  It's a long story as to why I didn't use these to begin with.  I guess I was always afraid they wouldn't work with the roller rockers and ARP Perma-Locs, so I let them sit under the bench for a few years.  After polishing them and painting the inside of the fins last week, I pulled the intake and put the vapor separator in the valley, put a PCV in the old road-draft tube hole, double gasketed the valve covers and found they clear.  So, now, I think the engine compartment fits the '60's theme of the car much better.
