Mustang Valve Cover Area 1964-2020
Valve Cover Area
A Mustang valve cover is a critical component to the Mustang engine, as it protects the rocker arm and keeps the oil it needs for lubrication in, and the dirt out. In fact, many early autos didn't have these critical parts, resulting in many rocker arms that needed frequent cleaning and oiling, since oil was constantly being thrown off during use and dirt was easily able to get in. Therefore, your Mustang valve covers are saving you from doing a lot of extra maintenance, which, otherwise, you'd be doing frequently.
Typically, your Mustang valve covers are topped with a PCV valve that releases the internal pressure of your engine back into the Mustang intake manifold, yet prevents dirt from entering back into the Mustang valve cover and damaging the engine. When replacing your Mustang valve covers, it is important to ensure you have the right sized PCV valve that will fit properly on your new Mustang valve cover.
While a Mustang valve cover comes standard from the factory on every Mustang, it's a common upgrade item, as a new Mustang valve cover can definitely add some style under the hood of your car. While every Mustang valve cover has a specific Mustang engine that it fits, they can come in a wide variety of colors and styles so you get the exact look you want. Some come with the Ford or Mustang emblem, while other Mustang valve covers have model specific text, like for the Boss 302, or even a company word mark, like the one for Trick Flow. They're also frequently available in chrome, black or blue to give your engine the color you desire. So, if you want to protect your Mustang or F-100 engine better and gain a little style while doing so, get your new Mustang valve covers ordered from CJ Pony Parts today!
