BBC valve cover clearance with brake booster
« on: July 09, 2021, 08:03:08 AM »
Does anybody know if these Ansen / CP style valve covers for a big block clear the 11" brake boosters on a 68 Camaro?

Doubt they will fit. I had a similar set on my 68. Only had about 1/2" clearance to the booster. Yours look to be slightly taller.

with a set of tall covers you have to notch the end - last time I cut out the last 2 inches of the corner and flipped the removed piece over and tig'd it back into the cover as a relief.
