Good luck. I searched Cap's. Got the part number. Ordered it, got a front case plug. Didn't fit. I think they dropped the ball on that one. Or changed the part number, or discontinued it. I got so aggrevated with not being able to find it that we just swapped to a 1g cas instead lol.

Moved to Parts Talk.

Closest I've seen, you may have to buy a new valve cover gasket set, which I believe comes with this plug as well. At least it did the last time that I changed my VC gaskets.

I just ordered this piece. Forgot what it is called, but JNZ can get them. They are about $11, expensive little part.

Damn maybe if I was paying attention I would have noticed that you meant the black plug on the opposite side of the cam, my bad.
