    This PML valve cover is a standard perimeter mount cover 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 can be used 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.

    The cover is larger than stock. It has a mid-height design that will clear some roller rockers. Please check dimensions in above link to verify clearance for your particular configuration.

    The valve cover can be machined with a PCV or breather holes. Hole can also be used for oil fill. Hole 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.
