Re: aluminum valve cover clearance
I've seen this before. The v/c's have a lip around them as a stiffener. Use thicker gaskets and you should be fine. If you cannot find them, glue two sets together with high temp silicone gasket maker. I still prefer the cork v/c gaskets. I use 6-8 dabs of silicone on the valve cover side and none on the head side. That way the gasket comes off with the valve cover and not stuck to the head.
