Yeah hard to find in the normal config though.
Every rocker cover I have seen has two holes and no oil filler neck.

I was thinking that I get stock rocker covers and get them polished up and put them on.


They are easily modified (well not even modified) to fit.
Although if you really want normal configuration and only one hole, PM Dave (BOTTLEDUP) and see if he can get you a set of plain covers like mine.

No worries.

Only mods required are the get the oil cap machined down, not neccessary but looks alot neater, you'll understand when you see it.
Also they foul on the back of the alternator which mean just taking a small amount of casting off the alternator, no biggie.

Here is the latest edition to the engine bay. Polished up 5 Litre V8 badge by Simon at Wheel Gleam.

Bloody great job!!! Adds just that little bit for me without going too much chrome.

Standard fitment. Normally you don't see it cause the engine cover is on.

Not bad Pete.
I think its time to upgrade those leads to some nice MSD ones, while your there get the cap too so you can ditch that cover and show them off ;)

I've got the cap installed Jeff. I got the cap, rotor and coil.

MSD leads good are they? Any improvement over those bosch supersports I've got now?

Ah, dont hide it then with that dust cover ;)

Yeah i'd say the MSD leads would be alot better than the Bosch ones. I'd imagine they would have alot less resistence, and also look better.

This is how she currently sits.

Still waiting for a good exhaust system. Also now thinking of getting another cam when the exhaust is done and get it tuned again.

But its cash I don't have. :(
