ENGINE COVER PLATE?

1961 Chevrolet Fleetline • 70,000 miles

1948 chevy fleetline, 6cly. I am painting the engine and want to remove the valve cover and the plate under it. What is the name of the of the plate that runs under the valve cover (the passenger side) and covers the spark plugs and ends at the beginning of the oil pan. It appears to be one piece. My second question is I want to remove the rear fenders but am looking for the gasket that goes between the fender and the body. Guess I need a roll of it because the Front fenders also has it

That plate covers acess to lifters/ pushrods. Is there a tube also that points to ground. Check on line for fender pipeing try Whitneys

Hey doc, thanks for ur help. I could not get the black tube off the block but once I got the pushrod cover off it was easy to sand & paint.
