Another "Fox Valve Covers" Thread - Year Differences
I had my passenger-side VC off to replace the gasket, and have a rocker kissing the cover again. I've been able to massage things in the past to get them to clear, but am getting tired of the precision fitment needed every time a cover gets pulled off, so I'm considering going with a set of Fox covers.
I've read several threads both here and elsewhere proclaiming everything from "They fit without modification" to "They fit but you have to grind them here, and grind them there, and replace the baffle, and re-weld the filler neck..."
I *think* the difference comes from people using 87-92 covers vs. those from a '93.
What I've pieced together:
1) In the '93 Fox covers, it looks like Ford removed the vertical "ribs" along the sides inside the covers which people have indicated need to be ground down on others. These seem to have an "F2" or "F2A"stamp inside, as well(?).
2) It appears that the oil filler neck on some covers ('93 again?) is closer to the front of the valve cover than others. This might explain why some clear the TB and others don't?
These two factors might be determinant in proper fitment on the 94/95, although different heads will likely change the formula, as well. (I'm running GT40-P's.)
I'd like to verify this if anyone has definitive info.
