    That is a real nice 63. I have a 63 that I would like to post pictures of but like Kathy J. I don't know how to yet. I'm not only new to Mopars, I'm new to computers.

        Blue..

        Those look like the fabricated valve covers from 440source.com.

        Any problems with them? How do you like them?

        Thanks Larry.

                  Lots of problems, lol..

                  They look good, but 2 problems...

                  1st..
                  The slots for the bolts are not big enough,
                  and machined way too small at the bottom..
                  I tried regular bolts and could not get them in there,
                  so I used studs, but the bottom machined area is too small
                  for a nut to sit flat, so I tried some 1/4" washers under the nut..
                  when I tightened them down it bent the studs and the washers
                  got wedged so bad that I had to break the studs to get the covers
                  back off..
                  Now that they are on the new heads I am using 1/4 phillips head
                  screws with about 3-4 1/4" lock washers to fill the machined area..
                  It works, but it's not right, lol

                  2nd..
                  They have no gasket retaining lip,
                  the bottom of the valve cover is flat.. If you are careful with cork
                  gaskets you'll be OK, but don't try to use rubber.. nothing in the
                  world will keep them from squeezing out..


                  So if you have some patients, don't mind cork gaskets,
                  and phillips head screws to mount them.. they are fine, lol

                    Thanks for the reply. I'm guessing a 3/4" long bolt would work with an allen head?
                    I'm supprised, with the price that they charge, you would think they would be a little more user friendly.

                      Something like that would probably work, and look better than what I've got.
                      I think I may swap them out and give that a try
