68' 350 Special HP Valve Covers

Did 1968 Camaro 350 Chrome Valve Covers have an "O" stamped in them?
If so...why?
Thanks for the help

Thumbs up Re: 68' 350 Special HP Valve Covers

The OEM units have/had an 'O' stamped in the rail - no idea why ...

1968 Convertible
Some trucks
Other V8 things - some of which float
Other V6 things - none of which float
Oh yeah, and 1 "Straight-Six" ...

If a man says something in the garage - and his wife can't hear him - is he still wrong !!!

...oh, probably just the General leaving his mark for future restorers to worry about...

Yep, same covers used on 68 Z/28 as well.

The covers are also asymetric.

When looking at the cover from end on, the exhaust side is higher than the intake side.
