daddyjeep I got an aluminum one from 4wheel drive hardware. There are a few other places out there selling them. They go for about $100.

87YJWrangler Well I got my old one off and a used plastic one back on, it shoots oil like its pissing water, my buddy's uncle has an aluminum one so it might be road trip time for us that way I can get that seal it up tight and finally drive the damn thing

87YJWrangler Dude that is dumb, I still dont understand the plastic bit I mean really plastic on a engine component as important as that?
04-20-2009 05:54 PM
jpdocdave not that it matters here, but every time i've tried to help someone look, only plastic ones for the 4 banger, quadratec and all. hopefully they get one available, but not that long ago, only plastic anywhere.

87YJWrangler Quadratec I think has one

jpdocdave be glad you don't have a 4 banger, i think no one has found an aluminum cover for it, only plastic.

Umm, yeah why did they?

What a hunk of crap, almost as much trouble as Chrysler's lean-burn computer connector!

I can remember my neighbor trying to stop his AMC eagle, from leaking out the plastic valve cover gasket. After like six tries, he discovered there was an aluminum one available.
