I thought the look alike valve covers were the real thing. Jim Carter's
sells a kit with the studs, seals, and nuts to replace two of the rocker
pivot bolts with studs so that a 216 valve cover can be bolted onto a 235. All
the 216s (and 235s) I've
ever seen had the filler cap on the front end of the top of the valve
cover. Unless it's a '53 or '54 235, the water pump still will not look
like a 216.
I have a '54 235 in my '49, but I didn't see the point in trying to hide
what it was.
