rear PCV cover on engine leaks.. do they make a better replacement cover??

Recommended Posts

on my 2.2 that im swapping into my OBW there is a rear cover that appears to be for the pcv system and it leaks.. its behind the clutch and flywheel. it appears to be a plastic cover, thou i havent taken it off yet. do they make a steel cover if this one is indeed plastic, and is there a gasket for it, or just use RTV?? if there are replacement parts, do you guys have part numbers for them? its a 96 2.2l

This is a pretty well covered topic here. Search for Oil Separator Plate. You'll get a ton of threads on it. Might even be able to find the part number for the metal one you need.

yep - you're on it get the metal one. not sure if they're all like that, but sound slike you're getting the one i always get that requires different screws. slightly annoying considering the cost of Subaru screws, but it's not really expensive, just principle.

Now honestly, what's wrong with good old stainless steel from your local hardware store? :confused: I bought screws from the local chevy dealer once. $70 for 14 screws for a flywheel and pressure plate. I could have had the same things in grade 8 steel from the hardware store for less than $5, but I was young and stupid.

yep, picked it up today.. looks like a much better design. $31 for the plate and 8 screws (yes 1 has loctite or something on it). now i just need my timing belt and stuff to get here so we can get this swap started.
