Rocker Covers

Hi Fellas, Ive been lurking around here for some time and finaly need some advice.
i drive a AU III 5.0l and just fitted some YT 1.7 roller rockers.
Problem is they just hit on the covers. Can anyone recomend some that will fit these EFI motors.

Thanks in advance,
Martza.

Re: Rocker Covers

Just buy thicker gaskets... you can get them from HPW.

Re: Rocker Covers

Spacers for regular valve covers are also manufactured for this exact purpose. Less likely of a chance for an oil leak as opposed to stacking up gaskets. Summit Racing might have them.

Sorry...I thought you were asking which ones will fit your engine?
