These things have saved my ass on more than one occasion. I've got set of the steel chrome ones on my new engine, but I took them off. I'm just not comfortable with the idea of chromies. I figure they'll reflect a lot of heat back to the pushrod tubes, which serve an important role in cooling the engine. My old ones were blue anodized aluminum, but I could have sworn that somebody used to make them in black.

Anybody know where I can get a set of black anodized? I can only find them in gold, blue, red, and satin.

Thx.

I was wondering when he would pop in on this one! If I was going to make them black, I would just spray can 'em. It's easier to fix when you bang them up!

Not a real good picture but they are stout enough to stand on them.
