The covers are flat without the ribs, but have the raised lettering. Maybe i just need to pick one or the other.
What type Crankcase venting does this Engine have? PCV? Down draft tube system?
If the fill neck on Intake has a Breather cap the new fill hole in Valve cover will need one if you change Intakes. You could add a PCV hole in one cover & fill/vent hole in the other. A Hole saw for drill works perfect, then deburr the hole & add Grommet/Cap/Breather
