Re: valve cover torque?

If you have the 1piece rubber gasket I just torque it down until the cover almost touches the head then stop.

Re: valve cover torque?

Cork is fine as long as you don't over torque it. It doesn't last as long as rtv, but its not super messy.

Re: valve cover torque?

Think the FSM states 9ft-lbs. 1st Time I did it we set it for 9 ft-lbs and either broke the bolt or stripped the thread, can't remember which as it's been 13 years ago. I do them by feel now with a 1/4 drive ratchet.

Re: valve cover torque?

^ +1

Hold the ratchet right at the "head" and tighten it down there. Holding it at the ratchets turning point doesn't allow you to overtorque the bolts, unless you're He-Man
