Hey guys,

I like the looks of those Ford Racing "Cobra" EFI valve covers. Does anyone know if they will clear stud mounted roller rockers? Are any modifications required?

TIA!

Phil

If youre talking the EFI valve covers that are similar to the vintage type cobra with the black crinkle finish then no they wont clear. BUT you can get aluminum spacers to get the lift you need. The taller polished motorsport valve covers will fit.

they do sell thick VC gaskets, I wanted to keep my cobra VC's on my 351w and 408, I slightly modified the baffles and used the thick gaskets and they cleared my roller ockers.

I have also had luck with modifying the baffles and using thick gaskets to clear roller rockers.

Do you guys have a source or a P/N or manufacturer on the thicker gaskets?

I used Fel-Pro #1645 which has double cork with a steel core. It was recommended by AFR for my heads. These gaskes plus a little baffle massage left plenty of room.
