    PML Cadillac Valve Covers Installed on a Mercury

    Wes King has a 1950 Mercury with a Cadillac 500 engine. He did custom machining of the top of these PML Cadillac valve covers and then installed them on his Mercury. Looks great! Our thanks to Wes for sharing his pictures.

    Finishes

    These valve covers are available in the natural as–cast finish.

    The as–cast finish can be custom painted or powder coated by a local shop if desired.

    These valve covers are sand castings. So they have the texture of sand. This texture usually is visible through the powder coat or paint, similar to an orange peel look and feel.

    Read here for more information about finishes and construction of PML parts.

    Gaskets

    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 for per hole. This is custom machining and must be ordered over the phone.

    See this PDF file. It shows pictures of PML Cadillac valve covers with holes machined and oil caps. A separate window will open and the file will load (may take a minute).
