Hello all,

Does anybody have a good recommendation for valve cover gaskets?

Setup: 302 with AFR heads and repro cast aluminum Gurney Weslake valve covers

With regular cork gaskets I'm not lucky.

Yep - Felpro Blue... They are silicone / neoprene as I recall and seal quite well..

Hello gents - thanks once more.

I had a nice person bring me a set ofgaskets from US in his carry on baggage > saved me 50% over buying it in Germany - third world country in terms of American muscle :-(

However, I have one more question: can anybody tell what thread size the bolts have for the valve covers?

I want to purchase some new bolts / studbolts / threaded Rod (not sure yet-depends what I get here in Germany) and I'm not familiar with proper thread types > yes I could remove one bolt take the thread pitch gauge and the caliper and figure it out - but I'm lazy and somebody here knows for sure out of his head.....


Thanks in advance,

Markus

Hello jac mac, hello Randy,

Thanks for your fast reply.

Now I'm up to the next challenge - availabilty of UNC bolts in Germany with desired dimension, proper grade and good plating - after I found the right one it was 2€ /piece....

I think I start a new thread for this one.
