Not sure if anyone has seen this, but ZZP offers an aluminum valve cover for the 1.4 now. I just got one from eBay, so it was too late for me. 馃枛

I was thinking, would the RTV The Right Stuff gasket maker work in place of the rubber gasket for the PCV plate? It has to fill that 'gully' and stick up, but this stuff goes on thick, so it should work. I really want to powder coat this thing. 馃ぃ

Stupid design by chevy, how hard would it have been to have it screwed off and pop a new one in?
even the aftermarket screwed the pooch on this one.

See the previous page of comments for a new cap and diaphram. Not too hard to grind off the old one and glue a new one in place.. But yeah I agree would have been nice to have had a removable cap and had the diaphragms as replacements... Its only recently the diaphragms/caps have become available.
maybe make a mold of the diaphram and make a diaphram out of the RTV your talking about.. if you put the semi liquid from in there the spring will push through it and it wont actuate as its supposed to

Think you have posts twisted around? 馃槈 Frankh was talking about the diaphram. I was asking about using RTV to make a new gasket to replace the rubber one for the PCV plate on the inside of the cover. 馃枛
lol yep your right ... though havet takn mine apart so not sure which one your talking about now

Also, a heads up. ZZP says that removing the PCV will break it and void the warranty. No idea what they mean by breaking it. Mine didn't break from Aliexpress. 馃し鈥嶁檪锔

I dont think its powder coat because of the overspray. I was going to paint over it but may decide to use aircraft stripper and start from bare aluminum.
