Valve cover casting arrived!


Very happy with the first pour. I had what’s called a “short run” where the metal didn’t flow all the way. It’s right at the firing order.  The 1 and 5 are barely there. The metal made it it just didn’t fill. There was a hole below it that they welded in for me.




I’ll sand the other numbers down to that level and see if I can make it work. Otherwise off they come.  I’ll modify the pattern so that future castings won’t have this issue.

The lettering is nice and crisp.



I’m going with Prismatic lite charcoal wrinkle with the lettering and ribs raw brushed aluminum.
