    sorry to tell you Zano..but its not the 1st time and will be far from the last time you run into stuff like this as long as you are in this hot rod business.

    if a person cannot learn or posess some minor fabrication skills in this hot rod world..get out or have plenty of money OR BOTH...cause nothing ever fits right off the shelf or as it should..
    Not in my world anyhow.

    You're not alone. Sort of like the response I got for my brand new blower manifold. "Oh that intake requires the purchaser to machine clearance for the valve covers." huh? :?:

    I seems like everything I buy anymore should have a label on it "Reengineering required". I bought a trans cooler from Jegs and it blew out the gasket on one end on the first pass. Upon taking it apart, the rubber they had used had swollen and softened from the trans fluid. I had already built a bracket and mounted it, and a new one would have done the same. I just made my own gaskets out of a better material. And that was one with an easy fix... :?

    just like the moroso fabricated valve covers for my bbc, that claim they clear [email protected] rockers. ya right not with dart heads! i'd post a picture of the custom clearancing i had to do, but there on the engine. it is a blessing when things go as expected.

    Everything you buy anymore should just read UNIVERSAL fit. As everything needs some kind of tweaking. Use to toys always said 'batteries not included" now then I've gotten older the packages should say brackets, bolts, bandaids and a case of beer required before assembly, LOL
