VALLEY PLATE, 4 .016" BEADED INT GASKETS, 2 END RAILS WITH FASTENERS
This valley plate has an "adjustable" port height (a Hughes Engines Exclusive) and is compatible with either standard 440 or Max Wedge port size, including ported heads or manifolds and is only 1/4 the weight of aluminum plates. They not only look nice, but they fit nice too!
Yes, they do work with the original 413/426 Max Wedge cross ram intakes.
The tray keeps the hot oil off of the intake runners. "It cools your fuel"
These valley covers are designed to work with manifolds that DO NOT have a heat crossover passage that hangs below the intake port openings. That includes most single plane intakes plus the Indy dual plane. Dual plane intakes with the heat crossover passage must be modified to use our valley cover. Call us for details.
The heat riser passage and any ports that interfere with the valley plate from laying flat on the manifold (refer to PHOTO 1 below) must be milled off (refer to PHOTO 2 below). When using our valley plate the heat passage is blocked off at the heads and is non-functional.
Hughes Engines Exclusive! Side gaskets only. Can be uses as Standard or Max Wedge port sizes (2.375"/2.650" x 1.280") Hughes Engines special, composition material w/ silicone bead.
