please help with h23a engine! commonnn

i have a 96 si h23.

when i bought the car one of the valve cover studs threads were completely stripped on the engine head. i purchased a helicoil kit and as i was tapping the hole the tap somehow broke off inside the cap as seen.

i then realized that i am a complete dumbass and was tapping the wrong hole to begin with....i needed to take the cap off to access the lower hole that the stud actually screws into.

there is no way i can get the tap out i have tried for days so i have resorted to just buying a whole new piece but i cant find it anywhere...not even on Honda parts now.

i dont even know what the part is called...my uncle called it a camshaft bearing cap but im not sure.

so i guess the question what should i do. or where can i buy one or am i just going to have to find a similar lude at a junkyard.

it says E3 with an up arrow and T1 on the sides

Go to a junkyard and find a h23. take the e2 cam cap off and put it on yours. E is for exhaust side I is for intake. Problem solved. And dont over tighten VC nuts its like 9lbs i think.

OK ill pay for shipping and everything to....i just need the E2 cam cap and the bolt that holds it down (not the valve cover stud, the one closer to the intake side)
