Nice job and pictures! Did you clean the inside of the valve cover with a rag or did you also use some sort of solvent?

Carb cleaner and a maxi-pad. I have some caked on oil around spark plug 3. I tried to remove as much as possible.













Ha ha. Just kidding... I used an old t-shirt with the carb cleaner.

2 things on this. One: you need an inch pound tq wrench not a ft lb that is more commonly found. Two: It is recommended to use RTV high temp gasket sealer found at most auto parts stores (Comes in a red tube)
