Hi ... new guy here...

Looking for a set of Chevy SB valve covers. They were sold by Total Performance a bit back and were made by Inglese. Much wider then SB Chevy covers, cast and expensive in the day... anybody know what I'm talking about?

thanks....

I saw those and they aren't the ones I was referring to. The ones I want are something like 8 or 9 inches wide and have the appearance of a dual OHC camed head. I saw them on a t-bucket in Total Performances showroom in Wallingford, CT some ten years ago or so. They retailed at something like $500 or better back then and I just didn't have the funding for them at that time. SO, I've been hoping against hope to find someone who has an old set or knows somebody that might have some. Did I mention I also need centerbolt covers? 95 Chevy 350 engine. TP had them... they DO exist... somewhere.

Again, thanks.

Are they like these ? They were made by Larson (or Larsen) Engineering in the '70's and '80's. I don't believe they were ever made for center bolt heads. Google Larson valve covers.

This reminds me of something that happened many years ago. I was at a friend of mine's place and he was telling me about all the stuff he was going to buy (I knew it was just talk but let him dream) and he says "see those valve covers? those are the ones I'm gonna get" and I looked at them, they were Trick Flow chrome valve covers going for over a $100 clams. And I read what Summit had written on them which said something like "Impress your friends or intimidate your enemies when you open your hood,, install a set of these trick flow valve covers on your small block's heads" and I looked at my friend, who's not very bright in the first place and said "If you opened your hood and I seen these I wouldn't be impressed or intimidated, instead I would be laughing my butt off at you for paying a $100 bucks for a set of valve covers worth zero power gain" lol
The valve covers in question on this thread they are unique and give a unique look, I'd be willing to drop a $100 on them just for the sake of dare to be different if I was running something like a T bucket show rod.

X2^^^, I've read about them being "rare", and cost or value up to $700.00! That is crazy unless it's a no-go show vehicle.

I'm going to hit the Norwalk Ohio Raceway's Spring swap meet whenever is comes around... maybe I'll get lucky.

I've been looking for these on and off for about 3-4 years now. I want to put them on an original non-restored 95 Silverado lowrider. I never did anything to the engine dept... the vehicle has been on every Hot Rod Power Tour from '97 to 2003.

That falls under a classified plus email addresses are not allowed in the forums. You can, however. do business in a PM.

The ones your are looking for that look like DOHC motor were made by gennie shifter company back in late 70's...early 80's .....they were made for small block about 250 sets and big block about 100 sets. They were/came crinkle painted black . To use them on center bolt aluminum heads you need the Gm or aftermarket adaptors for side bolt. There was also an air cleaner painted the same that looked like side draft weber system , but was fake .

I have these dohc covers on my 35 chev coupe. I also have acquired the other trick covers the Larsen engineering for my new build . they also came with a weber side draft looking air cleaner for single or 2 4 barrels.

Correct , they were never made for center bolt heads only side bolt heads . To get them to work on center bolt heads you need to purchase the adaptors from GM or aftermarket supplier's, price around $150. They bolt down thru the inside. I have done this to use the GENNIE SHIFTER COMPANY DOHC valve covers on 1985 and up aluminum HO center bolt heads.

GM performance made these so that you could purchase old school sbc valve covers and run them on the new heads. There is really nothing that looks nice in new style center bolt valve covers. IMHO
