Re: Valve Cover Leaking

My steel valve cover leaked in the same place. I never got mine to seal no matter what I tried because it was warped and bent a little. I tried cork gaskets, RTV, Permatex gasket maker, and others. I ended up getting an aluminum cover and it sealed up the first try. Make sure that yours is not bent or warped or you'll have a tough time getting it to seal.
