    Difficulty removing valve cover

    I have a 1.5F engine with a valve cover I've been trying to remove, but I'm having a lot of difficulty. I removed the 4 bolts on top and I was able to get underneath it in all of the areas I could reach gently using a box cutter and putty knives. I'm not sure if the valve cover has ever been...

    valve cover gasket too small?

    5/73 f engine. Machine shop gave me this gasket that's way too short. [1st pic] We ordered one (unaware that the machine shop already had) and this one seems to fit. 2nd pic shows the short gasket laid over the long one. Anybody know what's going on? Did I get an F.5 or 2F gasket from the...

    There are two ventilation ports on the valve cover, a PCV port and ????

    What is the other port/hose on the top of the valve cover that routes to the intake? I have been experiencing a TON of smoke upon acceleration from stop after long drives without stopping. I have an oil-catch device between the PCV and the PCV port on the TB but there's no oil being collected...

    I'm looking for at least one of these. Knowing how expensive they can be I may try to weld the holes shut on the three I have.

    Valve cover - paint or powder coat?

    Just getting some parts powder coated and wondered about the valve cover. Mine is a 69 F motor so the valve cover is black, or was once. Is powder coat a good idea? And should I do inside and outside or just outside? I have googled it and found some folk saying it can peel off the inside and...

    Well I was in the midst of changing my leaking valve cover gasket when two of the bottom bots twisted off very easily. I have started soaking in p-b blaster.
