    Will These Valve Covers Fit On Your Engine?

    Engine configurations vary! Before ordering use our CHECKLIST.

    We have a Loaner Program if you need a cover to test fit.

    Optional PCV, Breather, and Oil Fill Holes

    PCV/breather/oil fill holes are optional. PML makes these valve covers without holes and can machine holes when needed for an engine configuration.

    Our approach to PCV and breather holes is unique so we made a PDF file with pictures and details: PML Specifications on Oil Fill, Breather and PCV (click to view) (a new window or tab will open with a PDF file).

    If these PML valve covers are ordered with PCV, oil fill and breather holes, PML will machine one hole in each cover on the intake manifold side and include a PCV grommet, a push-in breather, and an oil fill tube.

    Call if your engine configuration requires one hole or to discuss your requirements.

    PML machines the valve covers to order in our shop. We use four or five different tools, shown in picture, on a CNC machine to create neat, leak-free holes. Spot facing provides a smooth sealing surface for grommets.
