Brand: Ford Performance Racing Parts
Toss your old, bent, leaky stamped steel valve cover in the trash! This heavy-duty cast aluminum finned valve cover from Ford Racing is designed for dry-sump Formula Ford 1600 engines and will remain straight and true for years.
The bare aluminum finish is ready for you to sand, paint, or polish -- or leave it as-is for an understated look. A Ford Racing logo and a single round flat area towards the front end interrupt the fins on the top. This cover is undrilled, so you can locate your breather hose wherever your FF1600 chassis dictates (the round flat area on the top makes a convenient location). For dry sump use only; no oil filler provision.
The thick, rigid flange on this cover will not warp like the stock steel cover, but it will require longer bolts than the steel cover (not included). A lip around the flange allows this cover to use the original Cork Valve Cover Gasket, Part No. 164-04 (sold separately).
We recommend running the spark plug wires around the front of this valve cover using our Spiro-Pro Long Spark Plug Wire Set for FF1600, Part No. 168-11-Long (sold separately). The ridges on the top of this cover can be sharp enough to damage wires that are run over the top of it.
This cover is not designed to fit high-lift or roller rocker arms. It is a bolt-on fit for stock Ford rockers and the "GT" cam on the Ford 1600 Kent Uprated pushrod engine as used in FF1600.
