    Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Diesel Valve Cover Gasket Kit:

    I was impressed when I opened up the box containing the valve cover gaskets. These valve cover gaskets for the 7.3 engine have a wiring harness that goes thru the gasket and the factory ones are designed with an internal clip to hold the wires to the gasket and over time with the heating and cooling the plastic gets brittle and breaks causing the harness to come unplugged internally and you could not see it until removing the valve cover. These gaskets are wired straight through and look better designed than the factory original valve cover gaskets.
    Only time will tell how they hold up but they look better designed than the factory ones.

    Not as good as OEM

    Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Diesel Valve Cover Gasket Kit:

    I bought this for my 2002 7.3 Powerstroke, and it gave me trouble codes for a few of my injectors. High to Low side open. Researched online, and EVERYONE was recommending to go with OEM harnesses because these didn't have enough shielding. I bought a set from the dealer, and codes went away. The OEM is made in China also, but it's to FORD's specs, so no shorts. Save yourself the headaches on this one. Trust me.

        Quality replacement that installed with no problems. This is the second one I have purchased. The first was for the passengers side. Then I replaced the drivers side. The gasket comes with the wiring harness for the glow plugs and the injectors. The clips all installed easily and everything fits like the original equipment. The set also comes with the outside valve cover clip that has the pigtail wires. The exterior wire harness would have to be cut and spliced to attach the new clip. I did not need a new exterior clip so I just clipped my existing clip to the new gasket with no problems.

        Nice Quality gasket with 1 yr warranty. Includes all necessary wiring. My only negative is the external wiring should include some diagrams and instructions. I've done automotive and house wiring before so I am not overly concerned. Installed gasket for now without new external harness installed.

          I was pleased to find the valve cover gasket and wiring harness in one kit, not to mention a price reduction to [$] by using an Advance Auto Parts online discount code.

          Nice quality gasket with all the extras included unlike some competitors for same price range. easy to install, perfect fit....once you get the valve cover off which is buried under a lot of components. Inner wire harness has all the connectors attached so just swaps with old one but outer harness requires you to cut and splice into existing loom which I opted to not do since there isn't a wiring diagram included to show how to do this properly! Appears to be a quality replacement, time will tell!
