1962 Cadillac with script valve covers
« on: March 27, 2018, 01:03:12 PM »
Hi All,

I am wondering if anyone else has run into this with their cars. I have a 1962 sedan de ville with a numbers matching motor but the valve covers have the curved upper corners with the script from a 1963. Does anyone else have this on their cars or is it possible one of the previous owners swapped out the heads from a newer motor?

Can you add a picture. I have a set of 63 heads and they are exactly the same as my 61

The curved corner script valve covers fit 62 heads because the corner of the head with the curve is filled in on the 62's but not 61's. The heads are the same otherwise. The previous owner may have swapped valve covers or heads. On a 61, the heads would have to have been swapped.
