I pull my valve covers off today and I found out I have these stupid cork gaskets on there...they didnt leak or anything but I was wondering if I can just reuse them like the other kinds of alve cover gaskets...or do I have to replace them??? I only want to get another 5-7000 miles out of this engine before I retire it so it wont be a long term thing...

Replace them. I bought a set on Ebay that were rubber.....I think I have reused them like 10 times already. They cost me a wopping $12 I think? Plus shipping....

Rubber Valve Cover Gaskets OWN.

go to discount or advance autop parts and order up the one piece rubber gaskets from Felpro. They look bright blue. You'll know its them when you see them.

heya, stupid question, but do you guys replace the valve cover gaskets with the intake manifold still on the car? mine leak a tiny bit so i bought some felpros, but i can't get the valve covers off without removing the manifold, and i've just been too lazy to do that so far lol

5oh,

Should be able to get them off without removing the lower. Have heard of people getting them out with the edelbrock intake.
