Had an oil leak on top of the rear cylinder and thought it was just the normal cracked breather. Turns out it was the nipple on the valve cover that was wiggling around...would I be correct in assuming that I have to replace the valve cover or is there a simple fix to this?

I'd have to dig into it more but I think there were two nipple designs. Late model threaded, and a simple sealer or blue loctite as the thread sealer. Early nipples were pressed in as in no threads. In this case remove it and clean the surfaces. Use loctite retaining compound and push it back in. Won't move again after that once the loctite cures.
