Rocker cover bolts and washers

Post by Dallas » Thu Nov 05, 2020 8:21 pm

I see several sellers on ebay have bolts and washers for the pinto rocker covers, does anyone know if they fit both the narrow lip and wide lip rockers?

This set for example?

Im pretty sure that set will do both . It doesn't hurt ( unless your a real penis fingers ) to give the flange on your cam cover a gentle panelbeat if the screws have been previously overtightened and dimpled it round the holes .
you gotta make the most :cheers: :cigar: :burnout: out of your 20's, 30's, and 40's coz when you hit 50 the "engine check" light comes on. :?

I'm sure that would do fine, might be a bit tight on the narrow lip but I'm, sure it would still work
