Mine fit okay. Tight, but okay.

I know it's a bad word around here but the only people I can think of is Mach Performance. But it can't be that hard to get a machine shop to make some up outta aluminum.

Nope. Saw an adapter somewhere. Looked like a girdle. Bolted it down to the center bolts and would then accept early style valve covers. Like these $250 beauty's.

Like these. Matter of fact, these could be easily modified.

That is what i have for my promagnum rockers. They fit perfect, but you will have trouble with the oil filler tube(i haven't figured it out exactly yet).

Might also consider having a set of the stock plastic valve covers machined to clear the rockers.

Or you can get the locknuts that clear the stock covers. Sombodys got em on s10forum ;)

Well machining the covors or getting the locknuts that clear is great. If I had to go with spacers will the covers fit under the a/c and other accs?

I have spacers my self and a little grinding of the a/c bracket was required to clear. Everything else clears.
