Default Valve covers

I'm looking for valve covers to fit Dart 18* heads. Anyone have part numbers or ideas for different brands. I just don't want to pay $250+ for valve covers. :cry: :cry: along with the $689 :shock: for an oil pan!!

Thanks
Rabbit

I guess he needs to specify BBC or SBC. Check this e-bay seller, he does custom covers. I have a set of SB2's from him, does decent work.

Dart 18*, BBC.

whoops. i didn't know they made such a thing as a SBC!!!! lol

I bought a set from Dart which list from $190.69, but when you place the order it only charges $89. The order says sold as a "set", but I guess I'll find out when it gets here. Either way still cheaper than anywhere else i found.

Anyway the motor is off to the machine shop to get put together and i can't wait to get it in my truck!!
