no, chrome ones really don't put pressure on the valve cover. hence the problem

Why shouldn't chrome bails be used? All they do is put pressure on the Valve cover.

Chromies NOOOOOO! These aftermarket things are the worst bails ever. Never have seen one that was even worth the effort to throw it away. If ya gotta have chrome, take an original to a chrome shop and have it plated.
