Another Valve Cover Thread


Recommended Posts

So while going over my new comanche, I found that the po has really hacked together the front CCV line. When trying to investigate the hose 'repairs' the entire 90* fitting has broken and almost fell into the valve cover, I am planning on soonish replacing the entire valve cover with the one from my 95 XJ but I need to get the MJ road worthy and put it through the state salvage inspection before I can tear into the XJ. Is there any acceptable way to repair this such as putting a new fitting in the valve cover and just using rubber hose for now instead of the factory stuff? I have a few extra CCV fitting that I bought awhile ago for the XJ, if those will work?

They should do it I got mine thru napa years ago so I do not know the number. I can get a pic mine if you want also you will need increase the dia of fitting in the manifold that the breather hose goes to I just used a standard air hose fitting the thread is the same. One like this You can get one most anywhere.

Checking back in after doing this job, so everyone knows the fittings pictured above do not work with the renix valve cover, I found this out half way through the job. I filed down the new fitting and used silicone to seal it back up properly. I am doing this temporary as I plan on swapping over my 95 valve cover when i start to tear into the 4wd swap.
