70 vs 71 429 valve covers information
#1
http://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/pts/4598197624.html

Not putting this in the for sale area because I found the statement interesting and possibly worth knowing if verified for the 71 429 SCJ and CJ owners:

"only the 1970 valve covers will both have a twist-in style opening for the breathers while 1971 cobrajet motors had drivers side cover for twist-in breather but pass side had smaller open hole for a special grommet only"

1971 Boss 351  
1972 Q code 4 speed convertible 
1971 Mustang Sportsroof  351-2V FMX 
1973 Mach 1 (parts car)

I had a set. The guy that bought them from told me the difference between 70 and 71. He claimed the 70s covers are hard to find in good shape. He was stoked to find them for his Torino GT project.
