These valve covers are on special because of cosmetic blemishes.
One cover has a lot of porosity (small pits) on the corners and the intake manifold side. Some porosity is normal, but on this cover there is a lot covering the back and sides.
The other cover has a pit on the "e" at the end of CHEVROLET.
Both covers have some polishing compound still on them. Some polishing compound is dark grey and is visible in the pictures. It will wash off.
A gasket is available: PML small block Chevy gasket
For reference, see our regular Chevy™ Small Block, 1955 to 1959, CHEVROLET Script and Fins, PML Part Number 11029.
This special should fit and function like a regular part.
This is sold as-is and cannot be returned.
