Attn: Lucky or other Pros with Lift Bolt Experience...

Ok, changed out my lift bolts today, and no they are not broken. Over 75k on the factory bolts and they are barely worn!

Anyways, here's where the problem is...

When I go to put the cylinder head cover back on, it seems the the rear right hand corner of the cylinder head cover is not going down. I took the cover back off, and looked at the oil supply pipe, and it is slanted to the right somewhat.

Is that how it's supposed to be, or is it supposed to be just straight up and down???

I think I may have bent it when I tried to jimmy the cover off due to the fact that I could not disconnect the wires that run to the spark plugs. In the front, it is all taped together to many other wires, and in the back, there seems to be no place to disconnect the wiring. Is there?

Anyways, just need some input.

Thanks.

Sorry, I'm at work now, and my car is at home, so no pics, but I thought that it should be straight also.

Thanks.
