4WD Hardware Aluminum Valve Cover
for an 258 Engine


One mans trash is another mans treasure. I am always amazed what can be found on the internet and in this case, I found me a perfectly good 4WD aluminum valve cover for only $30!! Considering that my factory plastic cover leaked like a sieve, I bought this thing right away. In order to install it, I had to order a replacment hardware kit from 4WD.com which cost $12.95 and came with a new cork gasket and everything needed to install it... or so I thought. Once I removed the factory valve cover, I found that the holes on the cylinder head were threaded for a 1/4"-20 thread and the bolts I got with the kit were 5/16"-18. Also, the two holes on the driver side which everyone said I would need to drill and tap were already threaded. Needless to say, I didn't have to do any drilling or tapping and this install was a piece of cake to do. Off with the old and on with the new.
