For those that hate oil leaks from valve covers (the stamped variety), we will have these prototypes on display at the Bash.

These only fit stamped steel or stamped aluminum covers.

One piece steel construction is designed to slip over the cover and distribute the clamping pressure evenly throughout the perimeter of the cover.

Seals gasket instantly without the use of sealer.

More info to come.

The bottom photo is a set for 455 Buick, but I included it because it has the Powder Coated Chrome finish. The 460 clamps in the photos are P/C Gloss Black.

This is the first forum to see these photos. :D :D

i bought a set of ones similar to these at a local parts store about ten years ago and put them on a tow truck they seemed to work fine.

Need to make them for oil pans too.....

I have been thinking about that also. While my patent initially covers valve covers, I am trying to find out if Ford has a patent on their pan rail stiffeners.

If not, I'm going to make some clamps for the pans as well. :D
