Re: Adjusting valves
I resused valve cover gaskets about 4 times before replacing. As long as it is still very pliable, and no one used more than just very small dabs of sealant at the corners of the half moons and on the small cracks where the timing cover meets the head it is fine.
Never had a leak of the valve cover in over 120,000 miles.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
