These PML valve covers are standard perimeter mount covers for pre-1986 small block Chevy engines. PML designed these valve covers with the classic CORVETTE script for C1, C2, and C3 Corvette, including the Stingray. The CORVETTE script is cast into the cover and is raised. On powder coated parts, the powder coat is shaved off the top of the script.

These covers feature a mid-height design that will clear most roller rockers. Please check dimensions in above link to verify clearance for your particular configurationand see our web page on fitting PML valve covers on small block Chevy engines for examples.

Optional PCV, Breather and Oil Fill Holes
