    Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

    I noticed my daughters LS-1 drivers side valve cover gasket dripping slightly. I purchased a new fel-pro gasket set. They are weird they are just rubber seal kind of looking things. I am going to do the job tomorrow [Wednesday] any special tricks to ensure no leaks? I am used to regular old gaskets on the valve cover these LS-1's are weird. Thanks for the help

    I've had my valve covers off a half a dozen times and never changed those gaskets and still no leaks. I'm actually surprised hers are leaking. Should be an easy swap.
