Outrider is on a distinguished road
I had a brain fart and cracked mine when doing my TB. I searched everywhere, and was unable to find one that I could get reasonably quickly.

Then I learned a hard lesson, after buying an aftermarket Dorman valve cover from Rockauto. I don't know if mine was just a lemon, or if they are all just an extremely poor design, but my engine started burning copious amounts of oil. Something in the internal baffling of mine was causing that - oil somehow making its way into the intake. I returned it to Rockauto and got a refund.

A very gracious member (thegipper) here sold me one that he had lying around. It was a very reasonable price, considering that the shipping charge was pretty high.

My oil problem went away instantly when I put an OEM valve cover back on.
