Gurney Weslake Valve Covers for 351W

I had a set of these on my GTD GT40 back in 2004 and noticed a few people that were selling them in 2012/2013 but does anyone know if they are available currently? Was thinking about putting some on my CAV GT40 when I install the webers if I could find a set for a Ford 351W.....

John

It depends on your rockers etc.

There is plenty of material to go at if needed.

You can use thicker gaskets or if your rockers are real tall you can use a spacer.

Thanks

Andy

Yes, I had to grind mine out. As Andy says, there is plenty of meat there to machine some out.
