AMC used helicoils during the last recall.  So, I believe you can do both.

I just found a new Dutch Jeep parts supplier www.jeepparts.nl.
If you push the the catalog button, you come straight in the OMIX-ADA catalog!
I saw that the OMIX ADA and collinbros covers have the same numbers, so they must be the same thing.
This Jeep store is only 35 miles from my home!
I will give him a call tomorrow.

I can read enough of that to know what it means.  Do they have a retail store or is it all mail order?  I see they have a mailing address on one of the pages and some store hours on the main page.   1500 different part inventory is not bad.

I think it is retail, but he probably will mail to order nation wide, in Holland they don't advertise that and certainly not here in the North (far away from Amsterdam): people are more laid back here.
If he has the valve cover for the right price, I will go check him out and make a short "road trip" (take the camera and post it here).

Eddie, I'm a bit jealous.
I busted my knuckles last weekend on the manifolds (broken bolts/studs): everything repaired know.
I took the plastic cover off as desert, and glued it back on with RTV, degreased it properly, but it is still leaking.
So I'm going to put a new cover on.

  Jurjen,
           Thats the only way to go. I had bought a gasket at NAPA, was going to try it, but decided to go with the aluminum cover.

Only way to go.  That #7#^@)&*&)@!)(@^@ synthetic cover just won't hold its shape.

Probably something to do with the hit series "Charmed"
Back on topic again: I went to check out www.jeepparts.nl in Wommels (Netherlands).
The place looked like a dump but they we working on Jeeps all right.
Most important: they had the valve cover I wanted:
It is the Omix-Ada one and as Eddie stated it is heavy and feels like real good quality.
Here is the picture (with kitchen table):
