PML designed these valve covers with the traditional styling of rounded corners and the classic CHEVROLET script for an old school look and feel. PML valve covers are sand cast aluminum and strong. They will not flex when bolts are tightened.
The script is cast into the cover and raised. On powder coated parts, the powder coat is shaved off the top of the script. On polished finish parts, the band is not polished to provide contrast to the script.
These PML valve covers are standard flange mount covers for 1959 to 1986 small block Chevy engines (265, 283, 327, 350, 400). The valve covers mount on to the cylinder heads with four bolts on the perimeter, directly across from each other. We fit each cover on a stock GM cylinder head with stock rocker arms.
These covers fit on many engine configurations and feature a mid-height design that will clear many roller rocker systems.
Verify engine configuration, dimensions, and clearance before ordering as PML has a restocking fee.
We one set of these valve covers in our specials section: Special #282 in orange powder coat.
Fitting on Your Engine Checklist
Configurations vary! Do our Checklist before you order.
We have a Loaner Program if you need a cover to test fit.
Optional PCV, Breather, and Oil Fill Holes
Our approach to PCV and breather holes is unique so we prepared a document detailing PML Specifications on Oil Fill, Breather and PCV (click to view).
PML small block valve covers can be ordered with or without PCV, oil fill and breather holes. Choose the option in the shopping cart. The option for PCV and breather holes includes one hole in each cover, a PCV grommet, a push-in breather, and an oil fill tube.
Please 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.
We have two videos showing the machining process: step-by-step of PML machining a PCV hole and step-by-step of PML machining a hole for our push-in breather.
These PML valve covers work with many engine configurations and roller rocker systems. If you have something other than stock, see our web page on fitting PML valve covers on small block Chevy engines.

Installations and Customer Pictures
1930 Ford Roadster

1951 Chevrolet 3100
Mike emailed us: "Valve Covers look great, compliments on them every time I raise the hood! Very pleased, thanks again"
Mike's handsome 1951 Chevrolet 3100 has a 350/300hp GM Crate Engine.
Mike selected these PML valve covers for the restoration of his 1956 Chevy with a 383 small block. He had the covers and engine custom powder coated. The Chevy was still a work in process when Mike provided these pictures.
1956 Chevy Nomad
Bill custom painted as cast finish PML valve covers to match his engine compartment. His Nomad has an original 265CI engine with some upgrades.
1957 Bel Air
These valve covers were completely polished by the customer for this Bel Air. PML offers valve covers in a polish finish, but PML does not polish on the band where the scrip is. By starting with the cast finish, the customer was able to achieve the completely polished look he wanted.
1959 Chevy Apache
If this Apache looks familiar, that's because it has been featured Lowrider Magazine. Luis restored his 1959 Apache Fleetside Deluxe Trim with a Vortec 350 Ramjet XL and PML valve covers. Our thanks to Luis for choosing PML covers.
Mark has the only right hand drive 1961 Parkwood 9 passenger wagon ordered in Australia in 1961. His resotration included these PML valve covers for the original 283 engine. He purchased the cast finish covers from PML and had them painted to match his engine.
