Since the F-body covers don't fit a Series II/III L67 what temps can the composite valve covers withstand?
A friend is going to be powdercoating a few things for me as that is what he does at work (powdercoating) and I thought I'd like the valve covers to match the intake pipe, SC and Thermostat housing.
Also, how about the SC housing.... am I going to have to regrease/replace the needle bearings?
And how does the nose drive come apart? Does it require the pulley be removed?
