    some Rover v8 stuff can be used but their intakes are too narrow (the 340 has a taller deck height which pushes the heads further apart).

    the Land Rover / Range Rover v8's from 1965-2004 are actually the original Buick small block v8 ... 215 ci and aluminum block from 61-63.

    Alum Valve covers for 340

    I got polished valve covers for my 300 in my 67 Skylark from Summit Racing. The polishing was pretty good except for around the screw holes.
    They were unpolished there. I masked off the fins and glass beaded them to a satin finish. Turned out pretty good. Price then (2015) was about $300
    if I remember right. Good luck!
