    "World Product" S/R heads use the old style valve covers. Head out to the salvage yard and get yourself some valve covers or call up Jeg's or Summit.

    There is also a adapter available at Jegs or Summit. You bolt it to the heads , then bolt the centerbolt covers to it. Gives your heads that stealthy "stock" look /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Why would you want those things? I never could understand the reasoning, unless you can't get tall centerbolt valve covers for whatever reason.

    Change the stock leak prone perimeter valve cover arrangement to one that has double the tendency to leak. (two sealing surfaces vs. one) /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Was just a thought. I would of thought if installed right they wouldn't leak. Oh well. Just get covers for the heads you have I guess. It would look cool having good heads hidden though /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
