Clearance

G'day

I have a question for anyone with an edelbrock efi manifold, on an eb or ed v8; Are any of you guys running high rise rocker covers to fit over roller rockers, and if so do they fit underneath the upper intake, or have you got a spacer?

If you are using a spacer whats the bonnet clearance like?

Now i know trickflows run with a spacer ok, but im running an edelbrock performer 5.0.....

Any help appreciated

Cheers
Simon

Re: Clearance

I have seen them run in an EB with a 3/8" spacer, but I think you will have problems with the 1" though.

Re: Clearance

alrighty, more problems....

Now my rocker covers won't fit on the throttle body side, the accelerator cable bracket goes close to the rocker covers now, but with a 3/8th or 1/2inch spacer it will be better...

My question is anyone who has different rocker covers, do you have a different than stock bracket?
