    titanium? Dang... I never knew jet engines even had valve covers. Heck, I didn’t even know they had valves!

    Not the shiniest. ;)

    Being an inliner freak, I've always been fond of the stamped ridges concept behind Ma Chrysler's slant six rocker box, as they're reminiscent of rolled beads. But it irked me that they didn't run'em the whole length.

    So ...... I did.

  4. So, I still don't get what that means. Can you give a correct translation for us Southern rednecks?

    I’ll bet welding all those fins took you a long time. My aluminum welding just isn’t that straight. And your copy of M/T is perfect.....

    Cool idea...until you start up the engine and the inside of the valve cover gets slimed with oil:p

    For all you Chevrolet fans, how about the only cover that said “Chevy”. Early 60’s ChevyII 4 cyl. upload_2020-10-2_20-24-15.jpeg

    Folks have been trying for nigh-on 70 years to improve upon it, with varying amounts of success.
