Anyone ever heard of Black Flag Customs, an outfit in Argentina? I saw a slant on FarceBook with one of their custom valve covers. It looks pretty nice. They are apparently scanning an Argentina slant head to eventually cast one in aluminum.

Only thing is, the guy with the valve cover paid $350 to get it.

jus sayin.....

It's a nice cover, Jeff Kendall has one on his car.
It's tall, enough for some 1.5 inch lift camshafts!

I would be in the mix for one of those heads!

I don't remember ever seeing that on Jeff's car! But that is really nice looking. I would probably save up for one of those in the future.

Does anyone have a link or know how to order one of these?

On that valve cover in the photo,,
I see what looks like a sealed oil fill cap.
A breather hose from the valve cover to the air filter, normally that hose is there to let filtered air into the crankcase, but no PCV valve pulling blow by from the upper cylinder head back into the intake manifold. Not a good system for minimizing crankcase pressure.
If this is as it appears, crankcase blowby gasses will be pushed through that small hose up to the air cleaner base and down through the carburetor. That is not the way to keep a carb clean inside.

That's how Jeff is hiding his nitrous. :mrgreen:

Looks pretty easy to use a PCV and a breather cap for the oil fill.

Most likely the oil fill is not baffled, unless you want about 3/8 of an inch insertion on the funnel you are using to add oil. A PVC port and a breather opening should be baffled, or the valve train oil will blow up through them.

What I always want to know is what does it weigh?

I'll take 2 heads...

You building a slant 12?

Could you imagine if this comes to pass, "And they said it could not be done!"
Well maybe they said it would not be done.
