Hi Roadster 78
This would fit my 2000cc spider which has a slightly cracked cover. I've never had the valve cover off (of an Alfa). With other cars its no big deal but wanted to ask you a few questions to be sure...
-is gasket cement used?
-which is kind of related to whether I'll need a new gasket?
-is torque an issue with the bolts.
any other considerations?

And lastly...is it still for sale and what is the shipping cost to the east coast?
Thanks
Dave

Hi Dave;

I still have the cam cover. not sure on the shipping, but i would think not more than 20 dollars.
I would not use any sealer on the gasket. The cover gasket is fairly thick and heavy duty. visually inspect the gasket for uniform thickness, and over all condition. You said that your cover was cracked. probably from over torching the the cover nuts. I tighten these nut with a open end wrench, and by feel. 25 to 30 lbs maybe. just snug. Mike
