Do I have this correct? There is a TSB that if you don’t have a cover you can water runoff into the spark plugs that will cause corrosion. Ford isn’t honoring warranty because there is a TSB. At the same time, instead of installing a cover on all trucks, they discontinued the part all together?

That's basically the gist of what I took away from the info, kinda dumb and doesn't make sense. supposedly there is a new engine cover being released....supposedly ?

I bought it. Thank you both for the heads up on availability and how quickly they were selling. Thought I had time! Figured I'd just pick one up now.
After you bought the only 1 left, 2 more magically appeared in inventory.

I wonder how many they actually have.

I was duped!?
I don't think you were duped and I think the price you got was fair.

It's just that it was listed as Last One and now they list 2 available.

Hah! Exactly. Amazon tactics. I was being playful. I wanted to try one anyways for noise reduction so I'm glad y'all got my attention.


Edit: I'll add this link for folks that find a cover only like me. This group is, for the time being, selling complete stud kits with washers and nuts.

Do the ones you guys are buying on eBay come with the mounting studs and nuts?

The cover does not come with the stud & nuts. You have to order those separately.

Just got a notice that my order on ebay was cancelled, that inventory was incorrect caused by Hurricane Fiona...

EDIT! - I just got the same email about Hurricane Fiona. So my order is cancelled as well from nixpar.

@Jbrubakerjr - do you mind sharing which store you purchased from? I purchased vdub's second link: nixpar is the name of the store.

They told me not to expect mine till Nov 14, and it looks like the "extra 2 covers" are delisted now. So giving me hope my order was real. I'm going to not expect anything, seeing as these are getting scarce.
