    well if they are not cracked, worse case is getting the valves out... and a total rebuild of course...

    yup thats a crispy motor. Fire deforms and weakens metal at high temperatures.........+1 on the boat anchor.

    it doesn`t hurt to look if they are for free! it didn`t get hot enough to melt the rest of the engine, the plastic is gone, but the valve covers are still in shape, just a thought...
    they have to get resurfaced anyways, wouldn`t hurt to pullem off and check with a straight edge... wishful thinking IDK...

    I would like to see what they look like under the valve covers. I bet that didn't get nearly as hot as you may think. Got a pic of what they look like under the vavlve covers?
