My credo
built her in a storage unit
they are listed at about $180 for a set of rails, studs, and nuts, they claim to apply even pressure and eliminate leaks on the 2.9 and 4.0 valve covers. has anyone bought these and are they any good?

Sorry I can't comment on the Morana rails but they look much easier than my solution of fabbing new rails for the covers themselves out of 3/16" plate.

If your existing covers are still solid, you can probably get away with the newer style overmolded silicone gaskets, strategic dabs of Permatext Right Stuff, and 3/4" (22mm) stainless fender washers on the bolts.

Try searching for brian built fabrication on facebook, He's got an ebay store too but I don't remember the username. I purchased a set of these from him for around 140 and they come with new studs and nuts too, great guy to deal with.
