Do you typically reuse the existing bolts/screws (not sure which they technically are I guess) from the old valve covers?

The SDS covers come with new hardware.

Default Very High Quality Parts!

I've recently installed these valve covers (and the induction tube flanges) on my IO-320. Beautifully machined and finished parts, and installation couldn't have been easier.

Thanks for posting the photo Chris. Glad you like them. Look great on there.

As Mike said, we supply with SS Allen head bolts and AN washers.

Here are some pictures of my SDS Aero Billet Valve Covers. I emailed Ross the stars and bars emblem and they laser etched them. Easy and great communication and support. These are on new Superior Millennium steel cylinder assemblies.

These things have a slightly larger flange width than OEM valve covers so I had to trim the aluminum baffles around the footprint of the new covers so they would mate against the cylinder head sealing surface.
