Re: valve cover gasket question
The two M8 bolts get torqued to 21Nm or about 15.4 Ftlbs. If the gasket is leaking there was not enough silicone seal at the half round corners (4) and at the junction of the timing cover and the head (2). Also forgeting to tighen the one bolt under the spark plug cover is another leading cause of this re-usable gasket leaking.
