Oil deflectors for BB

Does anyone make an oil deflector for BB heads. The oil isn't coming out of the rocker arms, like on a SB, but it actually leaks out the rear of the head. My heads are Edelbrock Performers. The biggest problem occurs on the driver side rear, when I am adjusting the valves, with the engine running. The oil pools in the rear of the head and overflows onto the header.
Thanks

Use tin foil on the rockers its cheap and works good. Just form it to fit over the push rod side.

Cut the top off of a cheap chrome tall valve cover and bolt it on for valve adjustments.

The oil should come out of the rockers unless they are rollers which are a little different. My flat tappet small and big blocks all shoot oil out of the rockers without deflector clips at any rpm above idle.

Yep, they are Comp Cams roller rockers. Yea, I might just cut some old valve covers.

Re: Oil deflectors for BB

Yes, it has been a while. I'll check out the website and plan to visit at some point.

For some reason, I have had better luck adjusting my valves when the engine is running. They are done now, it was just messy.

Anyway, see you.
