    What is the correct PCV grommet for above? The one I have keeps coming loose. Thanks

    Try this. Should only be a couple bucks.
    Just call a local parts store and give them that 42344 number.

    Thanks, the lip looks thin like for a stamped steel valve cover. The cast one is 1/2" thick where the grommet goes. Thanks again I found this one Beck/Arnley P/N 039-6506 it is supposed to be for the cast aluminum rocker covers.

        I was planning to pick up a set from Mancini Racing but have not done so yet. They off part number MRE5249642 to replace the Mopar version that no longer comes with new valve covers.

          Thanks, I am not sure this one will work, the next try will be Mopar P5249642, and I will take a look at your suggestion..

          I am not sure if the Mopar part number is still available. Shows out of stock or not available at several big vendors. I suspect that is why Mancini Racing has theirs available now, and it looks like they used a similar part number on purpose so it comes up when searching for the Mopar number.

                Please post up when you get it. The only ones I've been able to find for my custom MPs and Magnums that have a thick enough channel to fit are accompanied by a plug and cost almost $20 with shipping.

                  I thought I ordered U.S. Mail ground, they sent them Fed X ground, the shipping cost more than the parts. Not happy, be careful if you order...

                  Get used to it. I was just charged $24.95 for shipping, and the USPS amount was on the package, $8.50.

                  Just get one, for any old mopar, the rubber grommet kit you just got is the same set up that I have.

                  Sent Mancini an "E" mail asking about the shipping cost on the 03/11/2021, never got a response. Anyone else have dealings with them? Thanks

                  Yes, shipping is always higher than I expect and annoying. In my opinion, it’s a hindrance to me pressing “buy it now” button at Mancini.

                  Other than that, there excellent.

                    It would be nice to let you know what the shipping is before. Thanks...

                      Yes, I agree. I think they (Mancini) have no clue until the charge is made.
