Design and Benefits
PML valve covers reproduce the traditional style and shape of the stock valve covers with added height for many roller rocker system. PML sand cast aluminum construction adds thick walls and gasket flanges so there is not any distortion when bolts are tightened.
The classic CADILLAC script and small fins are cast into the cover and raised. The script replicates the 1949 GM CADILLAC logo. These PML valve covers are licensed GM products. On powder coated parts, the powder coat is shaved off the top of the script and fins. On polished finish parts, the area between the fins and the script is not polished so the script and fins stand out.
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.
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.
Inside of Valve Covers
These PML valve covers are baffled on the inside. PML offers optional machining for PCV and breather holes where the cover is baffled. A small lip holds the gasket on the flange mounting surface during installation. If needed,
