Default Cam valve cover for cut valve covers ?

Anyone know of any vendors that sell a cover like the Maruha timing cover, but is not insanely expensive? I want to be able to adjust my cam gears, but I don't want to leave my gears exposed all the time.

Just cut out the front and dont do dumb stuff with your fingers.


Think about it this way.
At least once a day you could accidentally stick your finger in your butt while wiping, but it never happens. Why? because youre careful.

Just treat your cam gears like your butthole and you will be safe.

Good analogy, if your butt were rotating at ~3500rpm and you never wore any pants. One errant rock or bolt and you end up with a cut timing belt. No bueno.

OP, buy a second valve cover and cut it for use on the dyno (where you should be adjusting your cam gears anyway), then put your non-cut one back on after the dyno session.
