Have anybody tried these FABRICATED Aluminum Valve covers from Gearhead, I order a set they look nice for the money, talk to the owner of the business, seem to be a real nice guy. Here is the link for his ebay store http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250613193915&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

ya i did actually... lets just say this... they did not set flat, made in china. could tell by the packaging... was willing ask accept the return,,,,, ending up just going a different route and reselling them on ebay... No way they would have sealed, probably would have cracked when torqued down they sere that warped. same garbage as what Summit sells as their brand is what ws told to me!

I would like to find an alternative to $300+ moroso fab covers. But it seems like these have limited quality control:(
CAST or make your own... still wont be cheap...

I ended up with a set of Procomp junk. Not a fuckin bolt hole lined up on these POS BBC covers. I at least got my money back. The kicker was, I sold em to a gook! :finga:

Has a pair and although the holes lined up you could not get a socket into the pocket to tighten the bolts. Could not sent them back because I had already glued a gasket to them, resold them for a 20 buck loss

Junk IMO

chet herbert had them hanging on the walls, i went one day to buy a set. when they brought the box out I opened it and set one on the glass counter guess what ? there was a huge gap at the corners. They pulled a few other sets and same thing, the guy suggested silicone and i suggested stocking a better product

China lover, yes you are ! ching ching chong ching chong ching ching.
Well they might be sold to a real China lover, I already have a set of Moroso fabricated for my sbc with a pump, one of the local guys tried these valve covers on his street car, and they worked out well, but I am not going to take that chance with my race car.
