Valve Cover Install - need help
I got a used Clifford valve cover off of an early 80's CJ to put on my 87 YJ. I was told it would work except for a hole at the back that needed tapped. I got the old one off, and it appeared that all of the holes would line up (the Clifford has less holes though). So I get it up there and the 2 hols on the driver side on the cover are just a little too far apart to get the bolts to go in. Is is okay to bore these out a little on the cover to bring the holes together more? Also, there's a little brass bolt thing that screws into the head at the back on the drivers side, I had to take that off to get the valve cover on, and in the process it broke, what is it? There's a purple wire that attaches to it.
