What are those holes in the side of the valve cover that look like eyes and a grinning mouth, future locations of breathers?
Yes for breathers. I didn't put them on yet. It can use a little more polishing. I probably won't be using this valve cover on this engine. I just wanted to see what it looked like. The new head I hope to get has it's own valve cover.
