someone on board here may have some or know someone who has some. Check fleabay also. You do NOT want to buy those new.

You can also use spacers with your valve covers-but then you have a second spot for oil leaks.  Taller aluminum (not the stamped steel) is the way to go.  Whether it be a 8V-71 or 8V-92 they use the same valve cover.  Good Luck, TomC

Check some of your local truck scrap yards. They may have some 8v71 or 92's laying around that may have them on them.
