I didn't come across this in the archives. The driver-side breather top (oil fill cap) is very loose. I can flip it lightly with my pinky finger & it'll just fall off. I'd like a tighter fit. Can someone tell me the fix? Thanks.

A factory valve cover breather Steve? I wasn't aware they made one.
It's a breather from a TR vendor.
Joe, thanks for the advice. I'll shim it.

Kenne-Bell and probably a few other vendors made a breather that went on top of the stock oil fill tube. Sealed it on with RTV.

Worked fine in my car for about 10 years.

So yeah it could be a stock tube....

My tube is anything but stock. And I never underestimate the power of Wood.
