Clear Valve Covers
« on: June 02, 2018, 01:13:48 PM »
After my recent limited production run I have a total of 7 of these clear valve covers still available for sale.  The shape of these valve covers is based on the 428CJ cast aluminum valve covers.  Price is $295 per pair, or $150 for a single, plus shipping cost.  If you are interested send me an email (jayb@fepower.net) with your shipping address, or reply with it here, and I will respond with the total cost including shipping.  For payment I accept Paypal, Visa or Mastercard (call me at 952-428-9035), or personal checks.

I am currently testing a baffle arrangement in these covers on my car, which if successful will allow me to add a breather option to these valve covers.  If the setup proves successful over the summer I will make it available in the fall.  If that turns out to be the case, I will offer a retrofit kit for the valve covers listed here, to allow adding a breather.

I am also currently testing the LED lighting for these valve covers on my car.  Also one of my customers is doing the same.  If the LED lighting system proves reliable, I will make that available on the new covers, and make a retrofit kit available for the covers listed here also.

Regarding fitment, I know that these will not fit the new Comp Cams rocker setup.  They also may not fit setups with the Dove end stands, or the T&D race rocker setup.  It may be possible that they would fit those setups with some modification to the bottom rails, but I have not tested that.  These valve covers will fit stock rocker assemblies, the old Comp Cams rockers, Dove rockers, Harlan Sharp rockers and end stands, Precision Oil Pumps rockers, and any setup with the Precision Oil Pumps end stands.  They will also fit the Erson rocker assemblies.  I suspect that they will also fit the T&D street rocker setup, but I have not tested them on that setup.

Pictures of the valve covers are shown below.  Please contact me with any questions.  Thanks, Jay

I'm currently testing out the LED lighting and the new design for the breather with a baffle plate.  So far everything is working well.  If it continues through the summer and into September without problems, I will probably make up another batch then, with options for the breathers.  I'll try to remember to message you when I get ready to make the next batch - Jay

I finally got home.... these are super super cool.  Happy I snagged a pair of em.
I'm absurdly busy with work the minute I stepped into the shop, but I just might have to install one of these, even if it's 1am tonight :P

Thanks Jay.

Drew, I got mine on finally the 4th of july. I went one step further, I made a Plexiglas air cleaner lid. Been showing it off to certain friends. You should see the looks and comments I get! I do need a 427 Bird emblem for the lid.

I would like to be added to any list for those clear valve covers if you do make another batch.  Oil filler hole preferred for PCV/fill cap.  Joe-JDC

Bob, I got ahold of a 1/4" piece of Plexiglas a little larger than the dual carb piece. I masking taped both sides around the edges top and bottom and traced the piece to be cut. I have a fine blade band saw that works really well a hand held jig saw will work but you need fine blades.  The key is the masking tape and fine blades that keep plexy from chipping as you cut. Let the blades do the work and gently feed the piece in. I transfered the holes for the carb posts and its important to put tape on both sides to prevent chipping. Again light pressure as you drill. Remove the tape and sand the sides, round the edges counter sink the hole lightly and presto its done. I made a 2" alum strip to run down the center put holes for the carbs in it and mounted it.   I`ll see if I can figure out how to post pictures of the engine compartment.
