I'll be replacing my valve cover gaskets this weekend (oh joy! :( ). In the manual it says to "place sealant on the head where the gasket arches over a cam carrier", so I bought RTV copper sealant.

Should I put the sealant on the entire arch, just at the corners or right round the head?

Confused.....:confused:

Hi

On the corners only. Be carefull not to overtighten the bolts. Happened to me, snapped one off. Fortunatly was on the front side. The bolts on the rear tappet cover takes alot more strain with the heat under the manifold.
