Default Identify these 348-409 Valve Covers

The Two Valve Covers in the rear have the Spark Plug Wire towers at the rear of the Valve Cover and are " Side Specifc ". The one in the front is a common one with the Plug Wire Tower in the center and can be used on either side.

Any ideas on the year / model for the rear 2 ?

TIA.

Just a wild guess cause I'm really not a Chevy guy. I'd say the rear covers are probably 348 Tri-power or 409 dual quad ?? To route the wires away from the fuel inlets and linkage??

Again just a guess.

Top 2 are from a 348 or 409 (not tripower) from 58-62

The bottom one is from a truck.


348 tripower uses a low spark plug holder, these are considered high.
All 409's from 63-65 used a plastic fixture.
HiPo 409's from 62-65 featured internal oil drippers.
