Hi guys, this has no commercial connection for me, but thought this forum would like to know....I am a member on the MEL engine forum and this came up.

Mooneyes made a polished ribbed cast aluminum valve cover for the 430 engine way back when. They stopped producing it due to lack of demand. A T Bird owner (not me) approached them to see if they would cast again, and YES if they had ten orders. I have a 430 in a Chris Craft boat, so I am getting a set. If you want a set.... contact Mooneyes directly as they are assembling a list of customers for them. Price is $285.00 a set polished.

MADE IN THE USA... and a great piece of vintage correct gear...

Cheers

Peter

An update: Moon has received orders for 19 sets, no one has had to pay yet. They are casting 25 sets. If you haven't contacted Moon yet, get going. This is probably a one shot deal. They are going to cast and polish a set and fit them on car they have access to.... valve cover gaskets will be available too, for an additional $16.50

another update for those of you who may have ordered:

Mooneyes is behind at the forge, and is casting a total of 30 sets based on orders, but it shouldn't be too long now.

They have become available. Some believe the run has been bought up but it never hurts to call-
