Re: Valve Cover Gasket
I got real lucky last valve check. I undid all the cover bolts then went to eat lunch. When I came back the cover had separated (there is a small spring under it) cleanly from the gasket. The gasket (with the little dabs of sealant) was still firmly set to the head.
Usually I knock it off with a rubber mallet and this always loosens the gasket from the head. Might give it a try. Either way the gaskets are re-usable you just have to clean off the sealant at those key locations and re-apply if it comes loose from the head.
