Just another cast cover with no baffles. You are wasting your money on these copies which are junk.

I wonder if a handy person could make a splash guard baffle and mount to rocker stand with some bracketry. :hmmm: I know there is not much room.

Why screw with a valve cover without baffles for $350 when for $150 you can get one from vintageinlines.com:
