These are made my Street & Performance. If you look in there LT4 section in their online catalog. http://hotrodlane.cc/
They sell for $300 new. They are polished aluminum. Not perfect but in good shape. Could use some polish.

$200 plus shipping.

So these will fit (clear alternator) like stock? Also fit the 1.6 rrockers to?

I have not had them on, but they seem to be the same, dimensional'y (is this even a word) as the LT4 covers I am running. I will try to measure them against an extra set I have in the garage and take a couple of pictures for you.

They a bit larger than the LT4 covers. I will try to measure my clearance on my car some time tomorrow, when I change the oil. They will surely clear just about any roller rockers.

Chris,

I finally got around to measuring these. They are not going to be a direct fit onto a B-Body with the larger alternator without a little creativity. If you had the smaller alternator it might work. It seems to be about 1 cm to long where the alternator would hit it. I have seen guys put a "dog bone" between the alternator bolt point on top and the alterntor raising the alternator. This might work, but it would be a custom fabrication job. Others have spaced the bracket and balancer a bit to allow for the larger covers. this would work as well and is likely the simplest answer. They are cavernous inside so roller rockers would be no issue.

I will look into getting them notched to fit.

I remember seeing a thread before Nick and that is exactly what they did. Others have gotten creative with a Dremel to notch the Alt case.

I think you mean pivoting the alternator a bit. I think it might but it would require you to remove the alternator and put the cover on to see if it would make it. I am not going to have time to try for a while.

You would have to dremel a LOT of material to do it that way. Not sure you could make that work.

when you clock the alt you remove the bolts thru the case and rotate the rear of the case 90-180deg etc,.then put the bolts back in,.

The term: "Not Rod" should be reserved for Bewber's work-in-progress, six cylinder powered bush hog.
