These PML valve covers are standard perimeter mount covers for 1960 to 1986 small block Chevy engines (265, 283, 327, 350, 400). The bolt holes are straight across from each other (not offset or staggered).
The oval pad and fins are cast into the cover and are raised.
The pad for your own logo or other design. The pad on the casting is 3.15 by 1.6 inches. When attaching a logo, keep in mind that engines get hot so be sure to use a logo and adhensive that will withstand the heat.
These covers are larger than stock. They have a mid-height design that will clear some roller rockers. Please check dimensions in above link to verify clearance for your particular configuration.
These valve covers can be machined with PCV and breather holes. One of those holes can be used for oil fill. PML designed these covers to be machined for PCV, breather and oil fill on the intake manifold side. Holes must be ordered over the phone and this will be custom machining. There is a machining charge. Additional information and pictures in this PCV, breather and oil fill for 8357 valve covers PDF.
Some additional pictures of these valve covers, shown with Ford logo installed, along with other discontinued valve covers, are in this old valve cover PDF.
