    A guy here in Australia makes them. He also does finned valve covers. I know his first name is Lindsay, call's himself 'The Y Bloke'

    was a nice casting. I didn't get a $$ on it but did have a look at it. One of the Aussies here will have his number, or grabbed a card.
  7. Ok all you Y block fiends, I just got off of the telephone with Lindsay and he said it's OK to post his contact details.

    And before you guys throw stones at me and tell me to put this in the classifieds,

    Mods, **THIS IS NOT AN ADD**

    Hell, even the boss wants this info.

    Just spreading this great news. Man, this is as good as sliced bread and canned beer, hell, maybe even better.
    Cheers, -H.R.D-

    These valve covers on the wooden boat were cast by me, the Ybloke and are a fine example of the quality casting available. These covers were an earlier casting, more recent valve covers from the Ybloke have a recess for the hold down grommet cast into the cover. I have been making these 7 fin valve covers for more than 6 years and have many happy customers here in Australia. There are several different versions available...
