Nate is going to call me tonight to try and help resolve it. But, I was curious if anyone else has run into this problem?
I did, but it was an LS motor. Had to go with .5" truss tabs and 1" mounts.

I spoke with Nate last night and he's going to make me another set of truss tabs with the engine mount point 1/2" higher than the originals.

That should work. He already has the template, since he did it on mine

Re: Project Roxy

He said he's ran into this problem in a few cases. Both with LS motors and regular small blocks.

Re: Project Roxy

Well, first time I've picked up a spary gun in 20yrs. Results are ok. I'm told that wheels are the hardest thing to spray..

What is the finish on these valve covers? Did you decide which way to go yet?

Re: Project Roxy

It's just aluminzed spray paint in this picture. I tried to paint gloss black over them, then block sanded the script with ultra fine, but it didn't work.

So I ordered some script decals from Ecklers in silver and will repaint them gloss black and put the silver decals on them.
