Sandcast valve cover question
« on: October 10, 2018, 07:56:46 pm »
This is on a 4000 serial number sandcast . Does the part by the tach bolt look right ?
 It sort of looks earlier to me.

 That does look odd, the tach screw boss should be flush, no baffle on the vent inside the cover. Waffle pattern inside? I'm no expert. The sandcast site has a thread on them. 5511 or 2695 didn't look like that.
If the things you own end up owning you, it's better to be owned by some cool things.

it does look right frank,flat on the timing side of the tach cable mount,look for some waffle marks on inside to really confirm.bill
