I'm goingt o be changing my valve cover gasket Sunday and I'm not sure if I want to use any type of sealant or not for it. Does anyone have any input on this subject?

Thanks!

It is very easy and straightforward. Not much to remove (except the cover itself...). I got a rubber gasket at the local parts store. I don't remember the price, but it is much better and easier than cork ones. Actually I don't even know if they offer a cork one; I just asked for rubber. No gasket sealant with it, just remove the old one, wipe off the surfaces, place the new one down, follow the torque pattern in the Haynes and follow the torque specs with a good torque wrench. That's it! Good luck.

My Haynes says 2-3 ft. lbs, which seems kind of shabby. Is this the same torque specs you used?
