I am sorry for the long wait

where are these located ?

can you upload a picture of them ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They are on the rocker arms under the valve covers and NO I am not taking my valve covers off to get a picture!
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

i was not asking you to take them off

i didn't know if you had a picture of them

where these located under the valve cover as in part of the valve covers ? and the old valve covers did not have these ?

or do you mean these supports where in between each set of rockers

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They were bolted on the head in support of the rockers nothing to do with the valve covers! No disrespect but if your the expert you should immediately know what I am referring to unless you have no experience with a 70 Oldsmobile 350 rocket motor !
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

if you mean the brackets that are between two rockers at a time is a cross over or also called a bridge which is a stock support they used on these 350's to keep the rockers from flexing
