I asked this before and got only one answer. I would appreciate as many answers as possible because your responses will make the difference on what I do. I have a 72 "Heavy Chevy" What is the correct valve cover color for a 402 ci? Chrome? Orange? Thank you
I doubt that you will get many answers on this one as most Heavy Chevies had small blocks in them. The ones with 402's were pretty rare, I have never seen one. If it helps any, my 71 Heavy Chevy came with a 350 and the valve covers were painted Chevy Orange. I have heard that the only big blocks with chrome valve covers were in the SS's but I dont know that for a fact either.
