Question valve cover

Is there a valve cover that will interchange with the Chevrolet 250 inline six that is like the kind without all the plumbing for EPA junk. I am going to transplant a 250 into the old 216 cradle and would like for it to resemble the old engine as much as possible. I would also like to convert to the serpentine belt but have not found the necessary pulleys and brackets. I appreciate your help on this conversion.

Al

194, 230, 250, 292 from 63 on. Most just have the oil fill and pcv grommet hole, hard to get by with out either of those. You might try Clifford for an aluminum one.
Or maybe just weld a couple studs out of the cover so you can put the old 216 cover over the top.

Thanks Willowbilly3, I will be going to Pick n Pull tomorrow. This will help me get the right one.

Does anyone know where I might find the brackets and pulleys for the serpentine belt conversion.

Thanks Al

I don't think that engine was around when serpentine belts became popular. But you might try using ones off the V8. It may take a little fabrication and ingenuity but I bet it can be done. Do you have an engine now? They are all good except that later incarnation of the 250. Early 80s they had a head with the exhaust manifold cast into the head and they are junk. I think the short block is OK if you use the old head. If you can find a 194 head they have the highest compression. Those are probably getting scarce. I think they only came in the Chevy2 and for a couple years. I might have seen on in a chevelle. Also I think the 230 was only 2 years also as it was up sized to the 250. The only one that is visibly different to me is the 292. It is taller and you can recognize it because it has taller side covers.
