For decades, the cool finned valve covers were aluminum castings. If you had fabricated aluminum valve covers, it meant you must be well-funded or your full-race engine needed the very best of everything. Now, thanks to the combined efforts of Holley/MSD and Mr. Gasket, the benefits of fabricated aluminum valve covers (minimal weight, plenty of clearance for high-lift valvetrain, and super cool appearance) are now available for us mere mortals with the stylish benefit of heat-shedding fins on top! The best of both worlds, we think. If you’ve got an old school Chevy or Ford small-block, this is an option worthy of your consideration. They are available in black, but we’re suckers for the more natural silver option. How about you?
NEW FINNED ALUMINUM VALVE COVERS FOR TRADITIONAL SMALL-BLOCK CHEVY AND WINDSOR FORD
Holley/MSD is pleased to announce the release of Mr. Gasket’s Finned Fabricated Aluminum Valve Covers, which put a modern twist on a classic, old-school design. Constructed of 6061 T5 sheet aluminum and available for Small-Block Chevys and Small-Block Fords, they feature a CNC-machined finned top and are TIG welded for a perfect leak-proof fit.
The Gen-1 Small-Block Chevy version is available in two distinct finishes – silver-anodized and black-coated. Small-block Ford valve covers are available in black, and all three and have a finned top plate for a cool retro appearance and a one-piece billet flange for superior sealing. Sold in pairs, they come with all the necessary mounting hardware for a fast, easy installation.
