This is a discussion on LS6 valley cover in pics within the External Engine forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; becuase it drains out of the holes instead of being sucked in ?...

    No, those are to limit the volume that enters the system, you still need either the limited orifice on the tube coming off the valley cover or the PCV as shown.

    Ordered the VC, took a couple weeks for it to ship, and this shows up:



    Now then... that's the old style ls6 cover correct?

    The gasket is different (color)
    I see no stamped on part #, just the stupid hand written tag.
    The plate on the bottom is missing?!?

    Before I call these guys, I did get the wrong one, correct? Anyone know the part code for the one they sent me? Reading the last few posts, with the one they sent, I need the PCV in line still, the new style eliminates the need for it (maybe a catch can, but that's later...) correct?

    Looking at ls1howto, they show the style I was sent. I am under the impression there was a change at one point.

    **edit**
    Ignore the drawing in the background... just some real work stuff sitting on my board.

    **second edit**
    Found the part # for what they sent me GM#12568002 in case anyone needs to ref this.

    **yet another edit**
    Bah... no need to reply here... All should be well in a few short days!

    Short of it all... if you get a new ls6 VC, MAKE SURE they send you the correct one.

    while i am at it.......i think the plastic cover with the holes serves as a catch can.......no need for a separate one.....since putting it on.....i no longer have that vanilla milkshake crap on the inside of the oil fill cap

    then they deserve a good ripping....why did they switch out PNs on a older part? ......especially as far as i know they are the only 1s in the country stocking the newer part.....at least you know from here it was not the newer part

    When you are looking to get one, be mindful that there are two "oil switches" on the car, and from what I found, neither one is really called an "Oil Pressure Sending Unit." (Although that's exactly what it is!!)

    There is one that costs about $20-$25 (or so,) and one that is around $40-$50. The cheaper one is the switch for the oil level light, the pricier one is for the oil pressure gauge. Make sure you get the switch for the gauge, that is the one in the pic.

    I have one sitting at home, I'll check the number on it and edit later. **edit - the one I have is manufactured by BWD - S4184, got it from Advance Auto, they owed me a credit**

    Any yes, I finally ended up getting my correct vc from Scoggin. About $75 if I recall? I'd have to check the PO when I get home.
