Chrome valve covers

Post  57ford custom on February 26th 2018, 8:30 pm

Who makes a chrome valve cover with "powererd by Ford" just like the stockers but chrome. Mine are powder coated but I want a pair of chrome ones for now. Not the aluminum as I have a pair of them. I also have a riser so they will clear my jomar stud girdle. I googled this but so far no luck lots of clear chrome steel for from 20.00 up no luck so far.

I do not remember seeing any, the factory dress up market tends to be more on the 429CJ aluminum ribbed style, you might have to strip em and dip em.

A guy at a local car show had a pretty stout BBF and he cut and 'extended' the stock Power By Ford valve covers and had them chromed.
You may need to do something like that.

There's always valve cover spacers - that way you can use "stock" height covers.

I have a used pair of chrome "power by Ford" covers. I would only trade for a set of aluminum CJ/SCJ covers. Nothing else or $$$s, just a trade. I too like the look and rarity.

It's just "Power" by Ford, not "Powered".

I have plain blue ones with spacers. I personally like the blue over chrome anyway.

How big of a spacer are you guys running to clear a stud girdle with stock valve covers? I found 3/8, 1/2 and 1”. Not cheap either but pretty cool

Check with DSC Motorsport. He has a lot of vintage and NOS parts like that.
