These heavy duty valve covers from PML for big block Chevy engines feature raised CHEVROLET script and fins and top quality construction. The classic CHEVROLET script is licensed from General Motors.

Benefits of these PML valve covers:

  • PCV and oil fill/breather holes
  • Holes have internal baffles cast to reduce oil blow-by
  • Thick walls and gasket flanges for strength and a secure seal to the cylinder head
  • Sand cast construction for an old-school look and feel

PML designed these valve covers using original GM cast iron heads. Chevrolet Big block engines include: 396, 427, 454, and the 502.

For our tall height big block Chevy valve covers, see PML Part Number 9739.

We have one set of these valve covers on SPECIAL: Special #265

Breather and PCV Holes

PML Chevy big block valve covers have PCV and oil fill/breather holes and baffles cast into the covers. The internal baffles help prevent oil blow-by out the PCV and breather holes.

These holes work with standard 1 1/4 inch grommets.

If desired, a breather cap with a 1 inch outer diameter tube can be used with the breather grommet.

Checking Clearance

Click for dimensions.

Engine configurations vary so please check for clearance for larger valve covers. The walls and gasket flange are thicker than stock and the fins and script add height to the top.

Look for clearance on the inside also, especially if you have roller rockers. A simple check can be made if you have the stock valve cover. Set the stock cover on the head and measure the distance, if any, between the gasket flange surface and the head. PML tall covers are approximately 3/8 inch taller than our standard height covers.
