Thread: Panhead rocker covers

    Panhead rocker covers

    Working on a 64 FLH. It looks like some bone head before me decided it was a good idea to do some prying and dented the aluminum rocker covers on my motor. Looking at Paughco covers. Has anyone had experience with these covers as far as quality, fitment and correctness?

    Thanks in advance.

    Paughco offers poor quality, fitment and correctness?

    Is that a question or a statement, Chris? You told me that Ron puts out pretty decent reproductions.

    That is true on a lot of parts. But the Pans need some massaging to fit correctly.

    I've had a couple sets from paughco, they fit well for me. I did sand them flat on a sheet of emery paper stapled to a solid core door workbench...Mike

    Thanks for the responses.

    If not paughco then who makes a decent set. I imangine as with all repo parts there will be issues but it seems NOS covers are hard to come by.

    Why do you need NOS covers? Good used originals aren't that hard to find. You will find oldtimers using them to hold small parts.

    It seems to me you can find a lot of steel, chrome or stainless covers around but most of the aluminum ones I find are dented or pited. They do not need to be NOS
