Valve cover baffle.


Recommended Posts

Hay guys I don't know if anyone is aware of this if your an LS5 car. I had my engine apart and when I was putting it back together I noticed a push rod was bent. I fixed the push rod and did the valve adjustment, and when I put the valve covers back on I had noticed the rocker had been rubbing on the baffle witch most likely cause the bent push rod on that cylinder. I did some research on a Chevelle forum and most guys with big blocks said they had the same issue. I bought some tall valve covers and put some masking tape on the baffle and rotated the engine with the valve cover on. When I pulled the cover off the tape was still there so hopefully the tall cover will fix this issue. After I run the engine I will probably pull one cover back off and check it again. If you guys are curious I bought the OE style orange tall covers that say Chevrolet on the top from summit racing. No oil cap but one grommet is pretty big and I'll just pour the oil in through the baffle hole.
