WTB: m30b35 Rocker/Valve cover (88/89 High-line)

Post by Jambers » Mon Jul 02, 2018 10:15 pm

Hi, mine has been beautifully painted/powder coated on the top, but the problem is that it has been done on the underside too and my garage has warned me that the job isn't brilliant underneath and could flake/contaminate the oil!

So I'm looking for a Rocker cover for a Highline 635CSi (UK spec) from 1988 or 1989.

Part is:

Condition not too important but must not be damaged and must be usable.

Would you be interested perhaps in one that's been prepped and painted right, i.e. not on the underside?

eg:

If not, also have standard ones available.

That looks good, is that powder coated or painted?

Also, on mine (as per the REALOEM link), there are 3 or so studs for attaching what I think must be the airflow meter? These are missing on your pic, though your pic could be for the M20?

Hi sskoda, judging by the position of the front end bolt hole this looks like an earlier type than the OP is looking for.

That's why I wrote "eg." guys ;)

I don't have a picture of a later one to hand, but yes, this is the earlier M30 type (82-86 I think).
I just meant this as an example, and it's painted (properly), not powdercoated as powdercoating isn't a good solution for a rocker cover IMO.

Hi mate - any idea of costs to ship a painted one to me and a non painted one too for comparison? I'm in Leicester. Can you please PM me a quote? I've been trying to send you messages but they stick in the outbox and will not send!

Hi, can you also please let me know how much a non-painted one would be?
