    Valve Cover Seal Replacement

    Any special tools or how tos for replacing the passenger side valve cover seal? What brand of seal works best? Do I need to put down a bead of gasket sealer? The last time I replaced a cover seal was on a 75 TA 400 V-8 and it was a snap, seal was made of cork.

    Need advice. Looks easy once the air tube and alternator are off. Nice to see the cover has bolts through the cente and now down along the lip like the Pontiac 400.

    Thanks.

    I have tried to use a number of Fel-Pro valve cover gaskets and they always seem too short. The OEM ones from GM fit like a champ
