Spark Plug Tube Seals

Felpro includes them with the valve cover gasket/seal. Any autoparts store should be able to get them. But the only way might be to get a valve cover gasket/seal too.

Ask for a Valve cover gasket kit. Should be around $20 and I got mine from the dealer.

PAhighline, I noticed in your sig you have a Mopar PCM....are you running a tranny cooler or did you do the toggle switch?

depends on your year and whether it's sohc or dohc also i believe.

When i went to get a set for my sohc 95, when i still had the car, i had to buy them seperate (the seals). However they were not much like a buck a seal.

Apply some red LocTite to the head end of the spark plug tube before tapping it into the head.
