Can you machine a valve cover adapter like for using old perimeter bolt sbc covers on newer center bolt heads?

I admit that I don't know much about the 225s.  No to sound naive, but would a 109 block painted green not be correct enough?  I think if you're already swapping to the later heads, the whole package would not appear much different at all.  Plus, you would have the benefits of more displacement, stronger internals, and not needing to make later heads work.  I'm just spitballing.  Either way, I'll be interested to see what you come up with.

I've got a full set of used roller rockers for a 231 if you're interested.  I ended up not using them for my TR7 build years ago......

Well a berkeleying mouse made a nest in the box.

Got them all laid out and here's what I got:

Kenne Bell brand rockers and Lunati Cams push rods.

 

Two of the rollers got rusty thanks to the mouse.

The extra rockers have good rollers:

 

How's $50 sound?
