Anybody know of a manufacturer who makes cast aluminum valve covers for the 429/460 std. with provisions for oil fill/PCV and breather? I've seen a set or two, but they always need to be drilled or knocked-out. I don't even think Motorsport makes a set!

I'm getting a little daunted by this, even though I've accepted the fact that I don't have an SB chevy, and whatever I need (though it might be the exact same item as a chevy) will cost at least $20 more (cause it's a FORD dude!). Grrrrrrr.....:mad:

Can't help on 460. I've always done Y block or SB Ford.

You got to love Ford to do them and I do!

That's what I'm trying to stay away from if I can. I know they're cheap, but I have the stamped Ford ones now, and the passenger side is racked. I actually have 2 stacked 5/16" gaskets in there right now, aso You can imagine how well THAT seals....:(
