Pretty sure that's the head oil retaining valve in the head (assuming it's between cam follower lobes).

If it's an original item on a silver top, there was a new version released - pretty sure it was the same time they changed the oil spec to 05W30.

Don't know how to check if it's working properly, but if memory serves it's not an expensive item for the sake of replacing it if the engine's apart....

Got mine from main dealer in the end, but donít have part number to hand Iím afraid. Other than that, I think Scholar used to keep them in stock?

I think the Ford part no. is 1041884 - was under £10 when I got one, but that's going back circa five years now....

Definitely not available from Ford, or just a lazy (perish the thought) parts advisor??
