Marine Valve Cover Question


Hi, Just a general question (I'm kinda new to the early hemi world)...

I've seen Chrysler Marine VCs with Block lettering and with script lettering.

Is that a difference based on year or engine?

I know they all fit the same, I'm just wondering why the difference in the stamping?

Thanks,
Geo

The exact valve cover you show seems to be from a 1958 I have seen one on the net pictured with the same color and decals about sodium filled valves

Only the word Chrysler changes from script to slanted block letters . Marine is always slanted Block. 53-54-55 Chrysler in script-- 56 Block slant 57 block slant Chrysler . 58 script. { from a google images search .

Thanks Dave!

I'm slowly building my first 1st Gen Hemi, and am still learning.

I scored 2 pairs of the block letter VCs last summer and have always been curious as to the difference.
(yes, I was lucky and got the adjustable rockers that go with 'em too)

The adjustable rocker valve cover have large dimples on top. The 58 I saw with the script valve covers may have had the wrong year covers.

These are the covers I was talking about: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zi4w-wwhOx8CkhfS3mVBWcwcJK7Y50Xa
