thanks for the heads up on that, I guess i was in such a hurry I mistakenly misworded what I was saying.
Is there any difference between 86 stock valve covers and later say 89-93 stock valve covers? The reason i say is I removed and grinded on the baffles in the stock 86 (part numbers anyway) valve covers and still don't have sufficent clearance. I'll get back at it tonight and make them work, but I just didnt want to be grinding on something that could stay if I didn't need too. I did this one time before and then sold them, but Have forgotten what all had to be removed and how long it took to do them both. Time is a serious issue, as the only thing keeping me from installing my engine is my valve covers, water pump arent installed yet. I have tonight, and all day tomorrow and tomorrow night to get this thing ready for the track in bradenton. GOnna be an all nighter tonight! wish me luck
