These are heavy duty valve covers for Cadillac 368, 425, 472 & 500 engines.
These valve covers were designed to fit the iron cylinder heads. Modification may be needed for some aluminum heads and roller rockers.
Example of iron cylinder head:
Johnni installed these PML valve covers on his award–winning 1970 Cadillac lowrider.
Alan's Auto Body and Paint in Hawaii (808-306-0359) showed off his Ford truck with a Cadillac engine at the Grand National Roadster Show in January 2018.
These valve covers are polished sand cast aluminum.
The polish finish is not like chrome. Since these valve covers are sand castings which have been hand polished there are always some slight imperfections.Read here about Finishes and Construction of PML parts.
Uses stock gaskets (not included). We recommend cork or cork composite gaskets.
PML sells cork composite gaskets for these valve covers which can be ordered over the phone.
PCV, Breather and Oil Fill Holes
PCV, breather, and oil fill holes are optional. A billet oil cap is also available.
PML designed these valve covers with locations that can be machined as needed. Holes can be machined on the top at the ends or on the intake manifold side.
PML can machine holes to order. This carries an additional fee and is custom machining. Machining must be ordered over the phone.
See this PDF file for more info. It shows pictures of PML Cadillac valve covers with PCV and breather holes and oil caps. File will open in a new tab or window. May take a minute.
