Re: correct 1967 sbc valve cover for 283/327
Learned something here. I've been around since these cars were new and feel that I have a strong knowledge of the small block details as it applies to original cars. The smooth valve covers were throwing me for a loop since my recollection was that the smooth non script covers appeared in 1968. The '68 covers would have been vented for a pvc which meant that they had holes in them. The '68 engines were the first year small block that was not machined with a "road draft" vent hole behind the distributor. The '67 covers had no vent holes. Your explanation about the Canadian cars adds new information about non script, non vented valvle covers. Thanks for the information......never too old to learn sumpthin!!!!
