any piece  like 1x4 or 2x6 lay the wood down on the bench now turn the valve cover upside down so you're looking at the inside where the valves and oil would be, lay the edge by a bolt hole on the wood, hit the hole area with a couple taps of a hammer, making the hole flat againWink do this to each hole! if its a stock steel coverWink don't do this to cast aluminum!
