Valve cover clearance??

Just curious if someone could measure the distance between the firewall and the closest side of the valve cover. Mine are not the same? Is this normal??

Yes. This is normal. The connecting rods for each bank of cylinders cannot share the same spot on the crankshaft. So one head, the driver's side, is a little more forward than the other.

Both optimists and pessimists contribute to society. The optimist invents the automobile, the pessimist seat belts, head rests, disc brakes, and air bags.
