I reached out to Cushman Competition to buy a set of Gurney valve covers. I sent an email stating my desire to purchase them and inquired on what was the easiest way to do that since there's no way to buy through the site. This is what I received in reply "not sure what your talking about and my guess is neither do you. I have on my website Gurney Eagle Valve Covers. I have them in stock. I have never and have no interest in fake crap. If your looking for the fake stuff why would you be on my website looking at original Gurney or GT40 parts?" I am not making this up, and did not change one letter, that's verbatim. Obviously makes me just a tad hesitant to order from this guy but I haven't found those covers anywhere else. Maybe I caught him at a bad time, bad day?
If you are doing a Windsor engine the "original" GW/GE cover will not work. We have one set of US produced GW covers for Windsor engines in stock, it is the last set
we will have. These work with roller rockers however the bosses around the mounting bolts are thick and, on SOME rockers, require a bit of grinding/clearancing to clear.
We will no longer sell these covers as we have approached AAR and arranged a licensing agreement for the TRADEMARKED "Gurney/Weslake" and "Gurney/Eagle" logos. The license fee to AAR is very
reasonable and is NOT the reason for discontinuing the covers; the cost from the foundry is the reason for discontinuing them. The retail pricing for a new batch would increase 40% to a point we feel is out of line. I expect that the UK produced covers will continue to be available despite that they are not licensed. While this may not mean anything to you, we take intellectual property rights seriously having had parts produced from our tooling and sold out the back door of the manufacturer some years ago (NOT the valve covers).
While we will lose sales, we can sleep at night. Dan Gurney was a class act and Justin and Kathy at AAR are also great people, and we will not trade on their goodwill and history without their consent.
