Purchased the pair of reproduction RAJO side plates for my Model T Speedster - just put them on to see how they looked. These plates, one to cover the valves and the other the barrels, are cast aluminum and the same as what suppliers are selling. The barrel side is held in place by hooking an eye both around the main bearing nut under the water inlet. I have included some additional hardware that is not included from suppliers. The studs are chrome plated and the short bolts, nuts and all but 2 flat washers are stainless steel. The 2 short bolts are for the barrel side cover. Smudge marks were on the plates when I got them $85 price includes shipping to lower 48 states. Price is slightly below retail but with free shipping.
The price is below retail since shipping is included as well as the additional chrome and stainless hardware.
Frank, just for information, your plates are designed to fit the two piece valve cover engines as well as the one piece valve cover engines. So they are useable on all model T engines, not just 23-27 engines. This is a good deal someone is missing ...
have fun and be safe ....
