I have no idea how to fix this, I over torqued the bolt and it cracked the threading for a proper sitting. FuCK!!!!! Cant even find the bolt now ugghhh

Anyone think a slightly longer bolt would grab those threads way at the end?

Simplest way to fix it is to replace the valve cover. ?
A self tapping screw would work but you'd have to make sure its not too long. This would only bandaid the issue until you get another valve cover but this is the way I would go if It were me but only to bandaid.

Good luck with it. ???

Thanks,

Should I purchase a new one or used?
OEM I assume unless there are aftermarket valve covers that are "better"?
Also, is there any benefit to coating it or painting it?

EBay is where I got my spare valve cover for adding AN bungs for my crankcase evap setup for my eventual turbo motor. It cost $52 for the unit including shipping.

I looked for o e that was clean and not so corroded from oxidation and also made sure that the under side was in good shape too.
It took a little looking but foundine and asked the seller if the one pictured is what I'm actually buying or just a reference picture.
I got a good one so I'm happy.

If you get one clean you don't have to paint it but that's your choice.
I'll have mine powder coated when it's ready so I won't have to worry about oxidation from the elements coming in from the open hood vents.

Hope this helps. ?

Please make sure that what is pictured is what you'll actually be buying.
That looks like new for $89 bucks and seems too good to be true.
Ask the seller if that's exactly what you're getting or if it's just a picture to sell the product.

Looks good if that's what you're getting and a steal. ??

Thanks for the feedback and info & yes I did confirm with the seller. I even offered a lower price and he took the offer.

Dang now I hate you. ???
Excellent deal my man and a very clean cover. ?

Mines in really good shape and have just a little bit to clean on the under side of the cover.

Good luck and stop over torquing your bolts. ???

I don't know what the torque spec is for those bolts but I doubt it's very much. That type of bolt really just needs to be snug enough to not back out. Over-tightening hardware for maintenance items will just make it harder and harder to keep it from coming loose. Good thing you were able to find a good deal on a replacement!

For 85 bucks including s&h/ tax I could not have asked for anything better!
