Torque limiting sleeves

I'm stuck in my engine rebuilding process because the PO threw out the torque limiting sleeves (metal). I got the new rubber pieces with my kit. Anyone got any for sale or worst case scenario could I install the valve cover with just regular washers + the new rubber pieces? Been stumped for a few days now 😞 can't believe they disconnected the part. I'd rather kick rocks right now.

I need the metal sleeves, the one I got with my rebuild kit only comes with the rubber part not the metal that I'm looking for. 🙂

then you did not get a felpro..)&)(&()().. Those sleeves were used by the oem and are not needed with the new gasket.

My experience is yes you do need the sleeves. No they are not supplied by the FelPro.
I enjoyed the same issue. A mechanic tossed them. Oil leaks til the cows came home. Torque and retighten to the cows come home. No Joy.

A smarter mechanic figured out they were missing. Harder than hen's teeth to come by. I scored and found a guy specializing in TJs. He actually hand delivered a set to my mechanic within 30 minutes.

They are long discontinued by MOPAR.

The felpro only comes with grommets. You need those as well.

So while I can't solve your immediate problem offhand, I do know of what you speak lol.

You need them.

Yeah I see them. Do you have a link to the product? It says it's not compatible with my Jeep. Or is the website just wrong and it'll work fine?

Thank you but the part had been discontinued for years now and not a single dealer in the country has any left 🙂 lol

Edit: realized you posted twice and know that the part is discontinued. My apologies but yuppers that's the part.

I have a old valve cover laying on my work bench with the sleeve still in it..

I have only pulled a few 100 4.0s and replaced about 1/2 of the valve covers with that felpro with no leaks.
so not really seeing them needed..

How about making some from steel tubing, like brake line, fuel line, copper tubing, etc.

Get the correct diameter and cut to length.

I am multi-talented, I can talk and piss you off at the same time.
