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

    If you're reading this, you're probably aware of the need for these valve covers. More importantly for me were the wiring repair pigtails that were included with the kit, used to repair the part of the engine wiring harness that gets damaged when the valve cover connectors overheat and melt. I ended up replacing both valve covers with these Dorman replacements on my 1996 F350 with 7.3l Powerstroke diesel engine. It takes some time to do it correctly, but work slowly and carefully and it's not difficult. The hardest part was cutting the old melted connectors off and splicing in the new connectors- be sure you are not which wire goes where, there are 5 wires on each plug, and 2 plugs per valve cover. These seem to be fairly well made, but slightly cheapish. I am a little worried about the small metal wire lock pieces that are supposed to secure each injector plug into the injector- they seem to work OK, but I could see them vibrating loose over time- there should be a more positive locking mechanism to make sure they keep that plug in the injector. Overall a very good item, and alot cheaper than the OEM Ford parts, I hope they hold up.

        fits good, only difficult part I would say is it takes some time to repair fuel injection harness. would be nice if kit came with needed electrical spades/connectors

          Easy install with rocker cover off. Includes external and internal wiring harness. I bought thinking I would need this at 153,000 miles, but original gasket was still good. I replaced with new one anyway. Wiring is good and no leaks. Check your external wiring harness first. If no signs of melting, you might not need to replace.

                good enough product, I suggest you solder the wires instead of using crimp fit fittings. and use shrink fit rubber on each wire you solder, then tape with electrical tape (each wire incase stray wire is poking through the rubber) then tape altogether and put back in wire protecter. i tested all with ohm meter after done and all worked out fine. all glow plugs work fine.
