I want to buy a set of stock looking valve covers for my '72 350 Nova- either chrome or painted- PLAIN, no letters/emblems. HERE IS MY QUESTION:

This is a seldom driven car, not a daily driver, so DONT need the best, but dont want something that will end up leaking terribly. Figure most of these stock looking covers w/be imported, which may be OK, so let me know what sets are OK. If anyone has a used set to sell, let me know. in NC

Leaking valve covers are usually from bad installation. They just need to be snugged with a good gasket, glued on the valve cover side, and load spreaders. Dont hamfist the bolts and bend the cover.

As for new, and Chevy restoration parts place will sell them. Classic Industries, Year One, etc. if you want new, used, just run to your local junkyard. There will be tons of them there.
