Some aftermarket valve covers are made but I haven't seen any finned ones. Very hard to find stuff for the BBF's, I've noticed. You can try asking on www.429-460.com or one of the other BBF forums.

Original finned 429 valve covers would be expensive if you could find them.

Since I don't have a Cobra Jet engine I didn't want them to say Cobra. Just Ford Racing, I guess that's where I'm going wrong?

Well I really dont know what my 429 started as. All I know is that is was a Ford Racing Crate motor. It was disassemled and balanced and blued and a roller cam system was installed sooo it could be a CJ or SCJ motor :huh:

Probably is a CJ or SCJ, most of the crate motors are. Mine's a TJ though.

I have the original aluminum valve covers but since I'm not doing a restoration to original I will gladly part with mine and take something in return if there is anyone who's interested... Ford racing aluminum covers preferably. Only thing is that I sit in Sweden but hey it won't cost a fortune to ship it across the ocean. ;)

All the Branda parts are available cheaper through Carl's Ford. They are made by Blue Thunder

 

There is one factory chrome valve cover made by ford for marine engines if you can find them. Used and sold by Holman and Moody YEARS ago.
