M56 Valve cover

So I bought a M56 valve cover and I got some question hopefully someone can help.

The cover that I have bought is missing the cap, I saw that people make them from Aluminium and the rubber part there are some companies that make them.
The only problem I have is I'm missing the spring, what can I do? any replacement spring? anywhere to buy that?

Also, I would like to know what part I need to the conversion?

Thanks in advance guys

Paraklas is selling the aluminum caps and another member is selling plastic caps and membranes. One of those guys might have a source for springs.
When I converted mine I capped the drain tube in the dipstick, the rear port on the distribution manifold and adapted the stock m56 hose to fit the front port on that same manifold. The only downside is it sits too high to fit under the beauty covers if you have them. Mine is an 03 so I didn't have to modify the coil harness or get different coils.
