Aluminum Valve Cover oil cap

Somehow lost my oil cap from my after market aluminum valve cover. I have found a temporary replacement, but would like a nicer one. Anyone know where to get a nice oil cap for the after market aluminum valve covers???

LOL - I lost mine about two weeks ago. My "temporary" one came from Autozone...although we had to open about 15 different ones until we found one that "worked". That crappy little plastic one that came with the valve-cover is (was?) worthless. I'm also interested if you find a good replacement, considering the oil hole is perfectly round with no catches to hold one in there properly.

I have a Clifford valve cover and recently bought a new cap from Summit. I'll check and see if I can find a part number.

I bought this one: link

TRD-9170. It fits pretty tight. I don't think I'll have any issue with it popping out on its own. At only $3.75 its too cheap to justify shipping but if you have a few other items.

A friend of mine used a Cheby one from AZone.

Make sure it's stamped 710.
