Re: Replacing Valve Cover Gasket
after removal of the valve cover, remove all traces of the old gasket, but don't scratch anything. once you have the old gasket off, clean the mating surfaces with solvent and let dry. install the 4 tube seals with a little silicone, install the new gasket into the groove in the cover so that it's in its final position, then lift one end at a time and apply silicone gasket to the inside corners of the gasket on each end. then apply some to the outside of the 4 corners and install on the head, torquing the nuts to spec. let it cure for a couple hours before running the engine.
