Anyone ever see one? Any pics? Who made it?
The only one that I know was Moon and they stop offering one several years ago.
Good luck at the flea markets or e-gay
I SEEN ONE ONCE (but missed it .. by that much) WITH DEEP FINN'S ... WAS AN OLD MICKET THOMPSON.
SURE WISH I WOULDA BID MORE
Sounds expensive. How high did you see it go?
Here's one that is available new by the look of it ...
That's a timing cover. I'm looking for a valley cover (covers the lifter area under the intake manifold
Damn - never was any good at reading comprehension
Heres just a few. Lots of people making them lately. Pontiac has come ito its own lately. You can build any Pontiac engine size with all the kits out nowadays. Stay away from Rock and Roll Engineering!!!! Nothing but bad news with this company. All the Pontiac sites out there know about this company and thier reputation. Bruce Fulper is the owner and the problem.Jim Butler Performance is A+ in service and customer relations as is Pacific Performance( Ace Brewer). Also Kens Speed and Machine also can get these valley pans and is also one great guy. He runs an 8 second Radial tire stock suspension 1976 TA. Hope this helps.
where's the valley pan/cover?
I saw a beautiful finned one on Ebay once. Went way out of my price range.
Here is a valley pan from one of the sites above, no fins looks plain
and at the bottom of this page are a couple
Nothing like a plain mirror polished one!!!
Allpontiac makes a cast looneymum one-Thanks,Repo!
I know this post is old as dirt, but here's my .02 cents. I have a large collection of old Poncho speed stuff and happen to own the Moon cover that was mentioned. It is the only finned aluminum one that I am familiar with. The Moon part number was VC35. The fins are deep and the cover sits high. Perfect for injection set-ups like Algon or Hilborn and some Edelbrock, Weiand, and Offy 6x2s. I see problems with any set-ups using the heat crossover.
Maybe if Moon gets enough requests they'll reproduce it.
If anyone is interested in this old ass post I'll take some pictures of my NOS unit and put them up here as soon as I figure out my camera-computer interface stuff.
