Thanks, Gary in N.Y.

P.S. There was no power brakes to worry over but I do believe the covers would have cleared?? Not really 100% positive though.
I did exactly that back in 2006 using the same Crane girdle and GMPP covers. It worked well, but have since switched to T&D shaft rockers in steel under factory height chrome covers and 1/4"-5/16" gaskets. The factory oil drippers had to be removed, which doesn't matter as the T&Ds don't use them for oiling anyway.

Post pictures.. -or it never happened!

I have normal plain summit chrome tall valve covers. The girdles hit the baffles. I like to find a nice looking cover and breather setup that clears the girdles. Winter is coming and this would be a good time to do some updates on the car. So many valve covers out there I like to narrow it down.
I used the Lunati Stud Girdle and was able to get my Valve Covers on with out having to modify either.

Unfortunately do not have a Part Number, they came from original Engine Builder who has gone belly up, did originally have their logo Laser Engraved but since been removed and they are baffled.

They are Cast Aluminium, shape is similar to Chevrolet Performance & other below.

I have the milodan TALL chrome valve covers on my 468 and they are pretty basic but they look mean, pretty sure they're as tall as you can find. They clear with ease
