    What I'm thinking is your 81 valve cover is for a 8-6-4 motor... That has tall covers for the cylinder shut off solenoids... If so the right and left sides are different... So am I correct? What was bad on your valve cover? I may have a good used cover...Dave

    yeah, it has the tall parts on it exactly like you described. I need the one on the right if you are standing in front of the hood looking at the engine. They were made out of plastic back in 81, and when it was being removed it cracked. :/ And i cant find one for the life of me here in the san diego area.

    The 8-6-4 covers are different from the '80 covers.
