Default Valve cover logo?

I was just looking through a Hayne'* manual for "Buick, Oldcsmobile & Pontiac Full-size models" and found a picture of a valve cover that had a round "6 cyl power" logo on it. Which cars had this?

I'm going to take a guess from the cars I've seen and say that it was just the 87?

You might be right. It'* been a while since I've looked at an LG3, so I dunno either.

It wasn't on the valve cover, it was on the intake manifold. It was the 86-87 Fuel Injected 3.8'* that had that. 85'* might of had it too if it was a very late year. It did say "6 cyl power" in red with a red circle or something like that. In 1988 the intake manifold had "3800" stamped on it and in 89 the 3800 was placed on the plastic beauty cover.

Ok, Thank you all. My Big Bro said that that logo was only on the T-Type Buicks. Hah!

Custom88 is right. I remember that now. The only 87 I've ever been well into was Zach Odom'* in Seattle with DrJay last year. I recall that on the aluminum intake manifold now.

Spank you very much, Custom.
