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.
Thanks! I'll give it a shot! Geez another forum I gotta join!!! :(

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:

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. ;)
