Default IHC LB Valve Cover

What is the difference between a 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 HP and a 3 - 5 HP LB valve cover? Is the 3 - 5 wider? Thanks.

Mike; I beleive the 3-5 H.P. is Physicaly larger then the 1-1/2 - 2-1/2 h.p.
Not just wider, but bigger all around. And you also have two versions one has the small swing door on the side of the cover so you can get oil in the troff. and the other version does not have that but a tube on the bottom of the cover to catch any oil spillage and get it away from the engine.

The one with the door is for an LA and the one with a tube is for an LB. I bought one that is the right width, but about an ince or so too long.
