Need a bit of advice, I am going to be changing the rocker cover gasket on my twin spark ph1. I found a good thread on here with instructions and pictures and so all good on that front.
My question relates to use of gasket sealant:
- what's the recommended one that I can get hold of easily?
It appears that the rocker cover on my 159 TBI is weeping slightly. Has anyone ever replaced the gasket before? Any hints and tips?
I have replaced rocker cover gaskets before in simpler engines but the TBI has a lot more electrics and pipework to contend with.
I just put these on Ebay if anyone is interested.
I had them professionally polished maybe 15 years ago as a spare set to drop on my 164 before visiting car shows and never used them.
Just got them back from the powdercoaters yesterday. I had to sand down the tops of the fins back to the metal myself. I couldn't believe how hard this coating is, It took me over 2 hours to do it!! Worth it though in my opinion.
Anyway what do you think?

The Rocker Cover Gasket on my rear Bank is leaking and making a right mess, I must admit I'm a bit worried about changing it myself due to the amount of dismantling and possibility of me making a hash of it.

Oil seems to be leaking from under the rocker cover so I have ordered a new gasket to replace it. Does anyone know if I need to apply anything to the gasket to make it seal correctly or do I just swap it straight over?
