Not a fan of oem
Just venting. Sometime's you cannot pay for a quality part for these trucks. Attached is a picture of a tdi valve cover and an oem valve cover gasket and the bag it came in. Its not even remotely close to fitting. These fit into a groove in the valve cover and when you stretch it one place to get it to fit of course it lifts out elsewhere. I tried gluing it into the groove with silicone but the ability to put spring clamps on it to hold it as you work your way around is nill.
The gasket dimension's vs the actual casting is off considerably with none of the curves etc matching up. It shouldn't take hours just to change a gasket. Placed the cover back on without a gasket and rolled the truck out of the way. Going to have to order in an aftermarket gasket.
