Is the cover with "BMW" block letters and four horizontal lines correct for a '73 model? Was the paint necessary to cover cosmetic issues with the original finish or was the original finish painted and you just refreshed it?


So it looks like yes the 73 M10 had that style valve cover. As for the original valve cover, was never painted. Was the finish bad on the original cover? Well, due to heat and oil etc. there were areas looking tired after a thorough clean up. Then I decided to piant them with the only high heat paint can I had. Didn't do a good job but hey, they are only $50 each for otherwise clean valve cover.
