Are the E9 valve covers with the oil fill neck prone to cracking? I have 3 that have cracks around the oil fill neck. Has anyone tried to tig it? Does anyone have one that they are willing to part with?

I don't have an extra one but TIG welding the one you have should not be a problem make sure it is clean and use Acetone to clean the oil out of the crack before welding. CLEAN is everything in welding aluminum.

Exactly. Clean it extremely well and than clean it again.
