I was on the project of replacing all my gaskets. Starting with the valve cover gasket and already a problem.
Well you know how people use a little rtv to keep the gasket in place, well whoever owned this car before me rtved the hell out of it and now i can't get the gasket out (scraping method) with out bending the alluminum valve cover.
I've also tried a gasket remover solvent from Advance Auto called Permatex Gasket Remover. This shit did everything but but loosen the gasket. It freakin took the paint off the valve cover so when i do get the gasket out I've also got to repaint it.
i just painted mine and i used ford red hi temp heat paint the 1200 kind. and i put like 5 coats on it and it looks kick ass.. also i have another spare valve cover that i will sell for 40 if your intrested.
